Curtis Green: Poetic Sensibility
May 6 – July 9, 2022
Artist Reception: Saturday, June 11, 6-9 pm
Paintings are important to the body of an artist’s work and should survive over time. I do not believe paintings should simply be depictions of things. The paintings I make are a response to what I see and feel, guided by a poetic sensibility. I want to remain in that space of responding and creating and not lose being shown how to coax the painting into becoming what it is.
My work is traditionally inclined toward outdoor landscape, still life and some portraiture. Over time I have developed a style that rests within a concentration on tonal harmony. My primary influences are those painters who navigate their palettes to maximize the most sensitivity toward their subjects.
I am honored to have been shown in several museums, participating regularly at the Long Beach Museum of Art. Many of my paintings are part of several private collections. I teach privately and for groups and am a strong advocate for increasing the importance of recognizing the function of art in our everyday lives.
