Lance Green (Colorado Springs, CO)

Lance Green is a Colorist and an Expressionist, but more than that he is a Storyteller conjuring images that take the viewer beyond the mere skin and bone of the subject and into the soul that lies hidden beneath. The majority of his works are conceptual self-portraits, but all are universal in their application, expressing the human paradox of grace and despair. There is an ambiguous optimism implied in the work invoking the artist’s secret language and bringing one to rest deeply in an ultimate redemption of all things.
