1981 · United States
Exploring the medium of photography, videography and installation, Valerie Green explores themes of consumerism, the impact of the digital world, and urban life. Through her work, Green blurs the boundaries between the digital and physical world, playing with the viewers perception of space, reality and distortion. Central to her work is the concept of space and she demonstrates an awareness of the interplay between the virtual and the tactile as well the impact of compression and expansion. Being unable to tell what is digital and what is physical, Green’s work presents to the viewer a luminosity of colours and an array of geometric shapes. In correspondence with titles of her works, music is sometimes incorporated into her exhibitions.
Green was born in the United States in 1981 and she continues to live and work in Los Angeles. Her reference to the digital world and consumerism is inspired by her analog childhood where she herself grew up alongside the development of technology. She went on to earn a BA from the University of California Los Angeles in 2006 and shortly after she received an MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 2011. Green has exhibited her work in solo and group presentations on a national scale and was most recently featured in “Second Wave: Aesthetics of the 80s in Contemporary Art” at the Culver Center for the Arts and “Second Sight: New Representations in Photography at the Torrance Art Museum”.
