“My paintings explore the relationship between the physicality of paint and canvas and the experience of light and space, particularly as it evokes feelings of joy and serenity. Beauty and mystery are important to our wholeness as human beings. Being aware of that beauty and mystery feeds our spirits and gives meaning to our more material pursuits. Good art has the power to make us aware of our deepest feelings and to make us more human.” Kenneth Green holds BFA and MFA degrees in painting and drawing from Baylor University and the University of Cincinnati. He has been working as a professional artist for over thirty years, and has exhibited his work throughout the U.S., including gallery exhibitions in Missouri, Colorado, New Mexico, and New York. Green was published in the 42nd edition of New American Paintings. The artist’s work is in public, corporate, and private collections, including the collections of the University of Cincinnati, Noon Day Ministries, and Sybilla Indermauer in Zug, Switzerland. Green currently paints and teaches at the Southwest University of Visual Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
