Beloved for her walk-through “Paper Caves” installation in Honesdale, PA., Samuelle Green’s body of multidisciplinary work all has a common thread. Her paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations reference the interaction between human-made and non-human visual languages. At times the encounters are contentious and at other times symbiotic. Many of her works are stills that simultaneously reflect the processes of decay and those of luscious growth.
Through mark making or the use of repurposing discarded materials (like paper), Samuelle seeks to highlight the forms and details of nature that are frequently overlooked and under-appreciated. She starts with rigid structures or self-imposed parameters representing metaphorical frameworks of natural laws. She then creates elements that repeat and propagate until they give way to organic forms free of both their literal and non-material scaffolds.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Samuelle was raised in rural Pennsylvania and attended Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and Parsons School of Design in New York.
