Andrae Green

"I am a Jamaican living in the US. But what does it mean to be Jamaican? For me, this means that I am a hybrid. Partly old and fully new. I could never have existed as I am without being in the New World. My identity is a hybridization of both European and West African cultures. A little of Europe a little of African and a lot in between. With the act of painting, I can merge these diverging worlds unto the canvas and give order to their chaos. I drag, push, and pull the brush along the surface of the painting almost as if I am in an active trance. The figures on my canvas come to life but not as how you expect. These figures speak about the current age that I live in; a world where representation and reality can be interchanged, and physicality can be fleeting. History, identity, and fantasy can be reinvented."
