FEATURED ARTIST

EMILY GREEN

The writer and LARB contributor Emily Green grew up in the 1950s and 60s being dragged through museums. Her mother was curator at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC at the height of the color field movement. Green has been painting on and off since then. She began painting routinely after retiring from journalism and a move from Los Angeles to Baltimore in 2015, where she fakes being a teacher to get discounts on brushes. Initially in another bid to save money on supplies, she began blending house painter’s latex with artist-issue acrylic as tint. The economy became a preference on seeing the faded, wistful and even subtly grungy quality to the images that had been pulled from memory.  Only the Alsop painting is pure acrylic, color as volume.
