Nashville, TN | Painting
Georganna Greene was born and raised by art enthusiasts in the Nashville area. She received her BFA in Painting with honors at the University of Tennessee Knoxville where she had her first solo exhibit at Gallery 1010. She studied Art and Art History at Studio Art Centers International in Italy and is now based in Nashville working as a gallery assistant and freelance artist. Upon graduating, Georganna held her second solo show at O’More College of Design and last year she curated Aggregate at Ground Floor Gallery + Studios. As a painter of landscapes and still lifes she draws inspiration from Richard Diebenkorn and other post-war abstract expressionists.
I currently focus on merging my natural and domestic environments with abstract techniques. Oscillating between narrative symbolism and action, my paintings are winged by drama, lighting, and tactility. Navigating interior and exterior spaces, I often juxtapose unlikely color schemes with traditional spatial arrangement. With each layer, each series of marks, events, actions and reactions, I gently nudge the work toward a saturated, emotional state. I seek visual and historical balance in my exploration of energy, renewal, memory, and familiarity.
