Green creates delicate artworks half-way between sculpture and paintings. Using a strange assortment of unusual found objects, a series of experiments lead this quiet contemplative man to form works that see parts of memorial poppies inserted into books with sawn pages, dye from discarded baseball hats seeping into strips of paper written-on with lines from Philip Larkin, torn painted paper held against the wall solely with umbrella spokes and images of footballers’ faces lined with pocket fluff. Despite the bizarre ingredients Green is a remarkable artistic find and this show, here at Summerhall, is his first ever solo exhibition.
