Anthony Green by Bailey Martin
Anthony Green's idiosyncratic art is anchored in one central theme: family. It forms the core of his immediately recognisable work revealing an intrinsic connection between his personal and artistic lives. The pictures in Green's mind have no edges so his paintings are not contained within a traditional shape. They have irregularly shaped supports reflecting the unpredictable range of situations and emotions that characterise family life. Green has exhibited across the globe and was shortlisted for the Jerwood Painting Prize in 1996. A distinguished and long-serving Royal Academician Green has exhibited at every Summer Exhibition for the last five decades. He was elected ARA in 1971 and RA in 1977 after winning that year's Summer Exhibit of the Year. He served for some years as Chairman of the RA's Exhibitions Committee. He lives and works in Cambridgeshire.
