Artist Statement 2014

Barbara Greene Mann

If Art defines a cultural era, it can be said that Ms. Greene Mann sneers at the world.   She transforms our planet with a sardonic twist. Ms. Mann says she had great hope, but now evolution seems to be reversing ," man is regressing like the apes  throwing feces into the air.  A Worse Planet for a Worse Population, may clarify or dim the brains of the dumfounded. "

She received her Master of Fine Arts from Wayne State University in Detroit in 1973, during the turbulent times of the Vietnam War.  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 committment,  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. I found the curation was much different there than in Western Galleries, where the submission fees rather than the quality of entries rule.

So I have great hopes for Paris, where my insemination as an artist was birthed.  A poem gives glory to this memory,  not sweetly noted, but true. It it is included  in my blog entries.
