Stalemate II, 2019, oil on canvas, 20 x 24 inches

Priya Nadkarni Green (b. 1986) received a BFA from Rutgers University and an MFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her paintings explore light and memory through the depiction of objects and landscapes that embody the human condition. Fascinated by the language and history of painting, Green uses observation and placement to create new meanings from familiar objects and imagery. Inherent to painting is its direct confrontation of construction and illusionism. Green asserts that memory and experience are birthed from the same “stuff”. She plays with this idea in her work to capture the notion that we are more than mere flesh.

Green has shown her work at spaces including the Jersey City Museum, Cuchifritos Gallery, Zimmerli Art Museum, and the School of Art Institute in Chicago. She is a recipient of the international Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, as well as a fellowship from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Green lives and works in Springfield, MA.
