Anthony Green RA (b. 1939)
Green's work mainly chronicles his family and surroundings, often creating his own perspective. He maintains that the pictures in his mind have no edges and do not therefore have to be contained within a rectangular form. Most of his work is painted on irregular-shaped supports and, more recently, on free-standing structures. The faux-naïf imagery is combined with a substantial paintwork which becomes more deliberately controlled in his later work.
