Artist Jonathan Green will show new works, an “extensive, concentrated exploration of the ways in which the rice economy influenced regional culture and society” at the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture. “Unenslaved: Rice Culture Paintings by Jonathan Green” opens on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013.
Jonathan Green is considered by many art critics and reviewers as one of the most outstanding African-American artists and highly recognized visual master for capturing Southern culture and traditions. While his work has ranged in styles, his best known approach to painting may be termed “narrative realism.”
Celebrated photographer Nadav Kander has taken portraits of everyone from President Obama to Ricky Gervais and has also turned his eye toward directing. Here he talks to Co.Create about the art of simplicity, authenticity, and leaving things unseen.
