Katie Green is a visual artist whose practice addresses nature as a crossroad for developing concepts of growth, death, adaptation, cooperation, and perhaps most importantly, our emotional and physical selves. More than something to be understood and subjectified, for Green nature is a space and opportunity for questioning. Primarily focusing on works on paper, Green uses acrylic, watercolour and drawing to create artworks in a multitude of sizes. Taking her practice outside the studio, Green also engages in larger public mural work, encouraging interactive, connected communities.
Graduating with distinction from the University of Calgary's BFA program, Katie's work has recently exhibited in galleries such as Contemporary Calgary (formerly the Museum of Contemporary Art), The Nickle, and Art Point Gallery & Studios Society. Her burgeoning body of mural work can be seen both locally in Calgary and internationally in Nepal, India, Florida and Sri Lanka, and was undertaken both independently and in collaboration with a number of collectives, non-profit organizations and communities. Selected through a national call to artists from all disciplines, Green recently took part in the Peel Project – a documentary following six artists for 21 days across the Arctic Circle through the Peel River Watershed. Supported in part by Canada Council for the Arts, this project helps to confront on the one hand the political and ecological vulnerability of this pristine landscape, and on the other, Green’s personal perceptions of nature.katiegreenartist.comRead more about the Centre City Banner Program and see the full artist roster.
