Georganna Greene

Limbic Slang represents a duality of place and energy. Within the last year, Georganna returned to Nashville after finishing her MFA at Boston University, to reestablish herself amongst her hometown community. This exhibition is a culmination of Greene’s recent work representing her time spent in both cities and the resonance held for the spaces in between.

“As one who makes, I rely on a cyclical, ebbing awareness of myself and where I am. The arc that runs through the made is an attempt to describe presence through process and gesture. Collage, photo, and, more privately, poetry, have introduced a sharper focus, a shift in textures and surfaces, and a resulting color scheme in my recent work that harkens to a personal, physical, and momentary place. Altogether, the motifs and gestures impress upon each other in vibration–humming an ode to the subtle madness of domestic routine. Illuminating such moments connects me to my own temporality and fragility. Painting them honors the repercussions with a type of slowness. In search of language to express both personal and collective growing pains, imprecision or slang seems to be some way forward.”

Nashville native, Georganna Greene, earned her BFA at the University of Tennessee Knoxville and her MFA in Painting at Boston University. She studied art and art history at Studio Art College International in Italy and has traveled, lived, and painted in various states along the East Coast. During her time in graduate school, Georganna developed an interdisciplinary practice focusing on merging gestural abstraction with notions of loss and renewal amid the 2020 pandemic. Recent shows include, Tiger Strikes Asteroid in Brooklyn, Boston University Art Galleries, New Art Center, and Piano Craft Gallery in Boston, MA. Limbic Slang will be Georganna’s third solo exhibition with Red Arrow Gallery, where she is currently represented.
