Anthony Green's Mirror
Organised and toured by the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, University of East Anglia
Fri 10 Nov – Sat 9 Dec 1989
Anthony Green’s idiosyncratic and oblique view is an intensely personal one of contemporary suburban life. These large, bizarrely shaped canvases set out to provoke and even shock, presenting a surprising angle on everyday life. As he says, “Lots of people loathe my paintings and hate what I stand for – sentimentality, the family, married love – yet others love it; there never seems to be an in-between. My paintings do not just exist, they have a message”.
