Portrait Nathan Randall Green

Nathan Randall Greens distinctive geometric hard-edge style is based on his keen cosmological interest and research, e.g. at the McDonald Observatory in Fort Davis, Texas. At first glance, his paintings seem like angular abstractions full of triangles in vivid colors. On closer inspection, the composite elements begin to form a space of varying depth. The many materials used, such as acrylic, scraps of canvas, cardboard, synthetics with paper pulp on organically shaped wooden panels and their layers create a complicatedly structured surface that indicates the intense process of their creation. His paintings achieve a visual depth and aim to convey time and space simultaneously.

“Many of my works deal with cosmological ideas,” says Nathan Randall Green, “and many of my paintings are inspired by the view into the distance, into our night sky, our solar system, past the Milky Way and into the afterlife.

Green refers to Hard-edge painting, which emerged in New York in 1959, experiments with line, form, color and texture and transfers this approach to a contemporary visual language. His paintings are artistic cartographies that “re-measure” the world of painting.

Nathan Randall Green (*1980 in Houston, Texas) studied art at the University of Texas in Austin. His works have been shown at the Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York, the Contemporary Art Museum Houston and the Austin Museum of Art in Texas, among others. Nathan lives and works in New York City.
