about

Christopher P. Green (b. 1983, London) currently lives and works in Cornwall. His practice consists primarily of paintings, installations and books. Green attended Arts Institute, Bournemouth (UK) and the Southampton Institute (UK). He is the Founder of the Library of Independent Exchange (2011 – present).

Green’s paintings are often conceived in groups or series; they influence each other and develop similar colours, forms, and content. In this context, the motifs are repeated and reinterpreted in a cyclical process of experimentation and production. Conversely, this methodology clashes with the spontaneity of Green’s paintings. The only elements that he defines beforehand are the format and the number of works within a series. He is in many ways a ‘painter’s painter’, whose abstract language is subtle and witty at the same time. The way he uses colour to challenge our ideas about optics and perspective. 

Recent exhibitions of his work include ALMA ZEVI, London (2021); Parasol Unit, London (2020); Galeria Alegria, Madrid (2020); GRON, Wales (2020); Espacio Vista, Madrid (2019); Unit 3, London, (2019); ALMA ZEVI, Venice (2018); Wolfson College, Oxford (2017); 41/42, London (2017); Dynamite Projects, Surrey (2016); Hannah Barry Gallery, London (2016). Green’s most recent book Professional Salad Vol. 1 was published in 2018.
Green completed a residency at ALMA ZEVI Celerina, Switzerland in December 2019.
