Gary Green is an American artist and educator
In the episode, we have a general catch-up about the never-ending Covid moment. In Gary’s new book, there is a series of peaceful and abstract images culled from his walks near his home in Waterville, Maine. The images completely pre-date the epidemic and yet they feel like a perfect metaphor for the moment. There is a feeling of isolation and of deep contemplation that marks the photographs.
In the episode, we also catch up on a number of works in Gary’s back catalog. When I spoke to him the first time, it regarded his excellent book When Midnight Comes Around published by Stanley/Barker. It was a great episode, but I felt it would be worth covering more of his work. Gary was kind enough to arrange his books The River is Moving, After Morandi, and History to be sent over to me. I was particularly taken with his book After Morandi, which we speak about at some length. I am a huge fan of the painter and seeing Gary’s interpretation of his studio is incredibly rewarding.
