New and Early paintings by Ralph Greene

For an appointment call 948-3840

Iconoclastic neoexpressionist Ralph Greene’s masterfully executed palimpsest “Pandemic 2020” pays homage to Kandinsky, Klee, ancient petroglyphs and pictographs. The mixed media tour-de-force is a documentary codex of Greene’s psychocentric exploration during social isolation. This composition is not about a rogue virus, it is a celebration of Greene’s transcendent creative vision.
