The interconnectedness of the Earth’s living creatures plays a major role in Allison Green’s new paintings, which she will show in her solo exhibition “Teeming,” opening at Susan Eley Fine Art in New York on April 2. Raised in rural Pennsylvania and currently based in Jersey City, NJ, Green grew up with a forest in her backyard and was a close observer of the flora and fauna that surrounded her from a young age. In “Teeming,” yarn-like balls of ivy, vines, and flowers act is microcosms that encapsulate mini-ecosystems. Green invites the viewer to look closely to observe the many birds, butterflies, and other insects hidden in their midst. Her deep appreciation for nature’s splendor comes across in her bright, fun pieces.
