Karen Green returns for her sixth solo exhibition at SPACE since 2009.
With the new work Green is back to collage and mixed media on paper, and with her characteristic delicacy and meticulousness she creates lush tapestries - some reminiscent of vibrant, exotic textiles, while others look like illustrated manuscripts, inhabited by characters from fractured fairy tales. The work is also infused with her characteristic off-beat dark humor, playfulness, and yet another invitation to a scavenger hunt. Each work lures one in to keep moving incrementally closer in search of clues, little treasures with secret messages and inside jokes. Promising that if we only look in the right place at the right angle, the story will reveal itself to us.
This work will thrill Green's loyal fans and collectors, and will doubtless win over new ones, as she continues to prove herself an entrancing storyteller in both image and prose. The work will be in view through April 26th.
