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.

Viridian Tears by Rachel Green

Everyone is dying for treasure.

The builder, benefactor and mayor of Laverstone is found floating in the canal and becomes the first prominent customer of a new business he personally championed, the New Eden Cryotorium. His distraught young widow seeks the counsel of a spiritualist to contact her husband and discovers he left behind missing treasure. Meanwhile, Meinwen Jones, village witch and professional meddler, ends up helping the cryotorium owner find her missing backhoe. The search leads to mystery after mystery and more murders.

Mechanic Winston Campbell thinks Meinwen is a perfect match for him. Both are alone and in need of someone to hold. He soon realizes a relationship with the village witch is a lot more complicated than he thought.

Only Meinwen holds the key linking the seemingly separate mysteries, but will she solve them before more there are more deaths? Will she find love along the way?
