Jonathan Green
THE RECEPTION Signed Lithograph, Gullah Family Wedding, African American

1989

$7,000

About

THE RECEPTION by the acclaimed artist JONATHAN GREEN pictures a colorful Lowcountry wedding in rural South Carolina; a community celebration gathering family and friends together in the spirit of Gulllah Culture. This vibrantly colored limited edition lithograph was printed using hand lithography techniques(not a photo reproduction or digital print!) from hand drawn lithographic plates on archival Arches printmaking paper. THE RECEPTION dazzles the eye with its lively shades of lemon yellow, lime green, cobalt blue, pink, lavender, coral red, mint green, light blue, touches of brown, black, gray - so many delightful colors, truly a celebration to behold! Painter and printmaker Jonathan Green is considered one of the most important contemporary painters of the Southern experience. The artwork of Green is heavily influenced by his Gullah heritage with vividly colored paintings and prints documenting everyday chores, in addition to celebrating Gullah life’s rites of passage. By returning his art to his childhood upbringing, Green has created an autobiographical body of work in addition to documenting a vanishing way of life. Jonathan Green's artwork has been exhibited across the United States and internationally, and is included in the permanent collections of several major museums. Artist statement - "I am drawn to rural environments that afford a sense of space and silence and an opportunity to unobtrusively observe daily functions of others as we all pursue life's mission of work, love and belonging.… It is the small, but critical tasks of daily life that I find most stimulating and reflective of the quality of essential, personal, community, and social values."
