Denise Green: An Artist's Odyssey

Macmillan Art Publishing, 2012
University of Minnesota Press, 2012


Statement about the book: Denise Green is one of the few Australian artists of her generation to have gone overseas and sustained a career in New York. There were no models for this. She recounts 40 years of maintaining a practice in Europe, the USA and Australia in an increasingly globalized art world. There are three main themes to the book: what led Green to become an artist, a critical appraisal of her work and its evolution, and the development of her career.

In this book there is a dialectic between the critical and autobiographical. In Green's three chapters she describes her beginnings in Brisbane and her subsequent years of training in Paris where she witnessed the events of 1968. Moving to New York's Soho to develop as a painter, she became embroiled in an art world that was theoretically and ideologically challenging painting. New York still provided a serious context for painting, but as a cutting edge practice, it was being given less serious consideration. Despite these challenges she maintained her focus as a painter and shaped an international career. Moreover, in her writings about art, she countered the prevailing ideology.

The book is unique because of the interplay of voices and perspectives. It stands as a monograph, an autobiography and a critical study. In addition to Green's chapters, it includes nine chapters by prominent figures in the art world from diverse backgrounds now based in Australia, the USA or Europe. Ingrid Periz, Richard Kalina, Frances Lindsay, Anthony Bond, Peter Timms, Roland Moenig, Christoph Trepesch, Lilly Wei and Kerry Stokes add perspective to the book's historical context and a wider opinion on the globalized art world today.
