Artist Statement and CV 2014

Barbara Greene Mann

If Art defines a cultural era, it can be said that Ms. Mann cries for the planet with a sardonic headshake. War is not an answer to this power battle,  Declarations to manifest a world community system will provide a better answer. But painting  turbulent times,Vietnam, , Detroit during the riots, is a thing she  does well.

Her work increasingly addresses the ongoing issues that pit men against each other.  Driven by her Muse, she notes amusing how not much has changed except her sharpened wit and washed out  humor.

Shaking her head she says " I'm too old for this. But there is nowhere else to go but forward. I have survived two lung cancer surgeries, a rarity, in 2010 and another in 2012, so there is something more I must paint or say.

As an artist  I have a commitment,  to speak to the world and of it. But this is becoming increasing difficult as the requirements to the  World of art changes.

I have shown in two European exhibits, both at Culture Inside in Luxembourg where I found the curation was much different.

Barbara attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan receiving a Master and a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts, with a major in Printmaking. She exhibited in Detroit prior to her move to Toronto in 1994. She has exhibited in only one European Gallery and was a winner among a  special group where she was introduced to a special curator and artist.

This month Barbara exhibited in a solo show at the Show Gallery., 2014

In Ottawa at Ridley hall , home of the Govenor General and his wife, her unique hand painted fashions marched down the runway as she sang her original song, Shopping.
