Dan Greene
Dan Greene is an Artist, educator, San Fernando Valley Native.  His work concerns itself with the dignity of objects.  He appropriates the word “dignity” to approach those aspects of an object which extend past the horizon of human comprehension, evading a complete mapping, taxonomy, valuing and devaluing.  Unto each there is more, teeming with more.  He makes it his task to attempt visual representations of these aspects and their barriers to scrutibility; to show you your own not-knowing. His artworks strive to provide a taste of seized apprehension; to glimpse a wave of the viewer’s own cognition halting at its crest.

How Could It Be Otherwise? – $500

“For The World is a Nest,an immense power holdsthe Inhabitants of the World in this Nest.” – The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard

Assembled patterns, shapes and colors arise from the Natural world combined with Pop Culture Icons that dwell in a kind of Disorderly Order in my constructed Fantasy Nests.Influenced by Buddhism, Impermanence and a Deep Regard for all living things, and the Mystery of Life.
