Murray Green

Murray Green’s paintings are characterized by an inventive alchemy of paint and resin. The underlying painterly structure is randomly built up with dense layers and then left to naturally slip, ooze and fall from the support. To preserve and contain this action Green carefully pours resin over these sculptural candy-like drips permitting only some of the under painting to be visible. What happens at the surface is a beautiful yet strange tension between the uncontrollable and the controlled.
