Rachel Green - Artist Statement

My paintings are an attempt to deconstruct the personality from the outward display of social mores. The perception of the individual from the clues they scatter like breadcrumbs in the forest of social conformity. I paint the outcasts, the social misfits, the anti heroes. I try to expose the darkness we try to hide, the pain, the terror.

I generally work in paint, either oils or watercolours, and often embellish the image with text. Images are generally built up in layers, allowing random chance to influence the final image. Memories become Demons. Demons become constellations. Constellations become neurons firing the brain. The texts provide clues to content and interpretation.

Every image is rooted in the world. I recycle paper for books and painting surfaces, tear old canvas into strips and distort the surface from the traditional. These are not portraits of people, they are representations of the id.
