(Nashville TN, b. 1993)
Nashville artist Georganna Greene received her BFA in Painting with honors at the University of Tennessee Knoxville where she had her first solo exhibition 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 freelance artist and art handler.

She recently had work included in Bevy at Julia Martin Gallery and is currently preparing for a spring 2018 solo show in East Nashville.
I marry stories from the past with convictions of the present on the surface of each painting or drawing as an attempt to move forward personally and creatively. Addressing both documentation and a formal language that is material heavy, my paintings grow with me, sometimes away from me. Building up layers, over weeks, months, or even years, I gently nudge the work toward a saturated but "al dente" state. I seek visual and historical balance in my exploration of energy, renewal, memory, and familiarity.
