Green’s artist statement, "In my work, I have explored a creative process which involves applying multiple layers of color and gesture to produce a desired result. I then destroy the image by completely painting over it. I partially grind off the top layer to reveal the under painting beneath. The resulting patina is a record of the painting’s visual history and the multiple stages of my creative art."
Suzanne Marshall’s statement, "Recently I had a sea change in my approach to painting. Instead of planning the work to communicate a personal philosophy, I am letting the paint itself take over the discourse with the viewer. The act of painting communicates through the innate qualities of the medium: the edges which are created when one color touches another; the color itself; the values; the shapes; the thickness of the application; the size of the work; the surface quality; and many other attributes. The surface quality of the work is especially important to me as a painter; paint scrapped off to expose previous layers and marks is, for me, a metaphor for bringing the past to bear on the present informing the future."
