Stuart Green

I have been in Education, teaching art, for over fifty years. After having moved to Ely in 1981, I exhibited all over East Anglia and the Midlands in solo and group shows. I have also exhibited in Germany and have work in private collections both in Europe and Australia. A teaching exchange in Australia dramatically changed my way of working: seeing the world literally from many different perspectives encouraged new approaches and experimentation.

By inclination I am a painter of landscape. At times I will record simply for the enjoyment of being in a particular place and at other times I search more deeply for the marks that both man and nature have made. It is through this search that I find the colours, patterns, textures and forms that are the roots of my work.

Painting always involves some sort of journey but as Henry Miller once said, “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” I have spent most of my life trying to see in new ways and attempting to create a sense of place.
