The Red Arrow Gallery announces Adagio, a solo exhibition with painter, Georganna Greene, opening on February 10th, 2018 from 6-9PM.
Adagio meaning “at ease” refers to the slow movement within ballet or pertaining to music. It commands a fluid progression.
Georganna Greene is a painter born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. Taught the principles of ballet since the age of 3, Greene carries on this similar movement and pallet into her works today. Primarily working with oils, she creates beautiful a flow of pastels into her colorscapes. Greene resembles the female, abstract expressionist artists such as Helen Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell. The work Greene creates, she says, have a firm, beckoning tempo that has loudly hummed underneath all of her endeavors. “Rhythm, flow, memory, and progress together create a sacred, often uncomfortable context in which I think about painting. In the manner of Adagio, tempo too supports the emerging language of the paintings in this show.”- Georganna Greene, 2017
