MEGAN GREENE has long used naturalist studies and images of flora/fauna in her work. In this series, she mutates traditional Audubon bird prints, exploring shifts between the found vs. altered, drawn vs. photographic, representational vs. abstract, and the beautiful vs. the grotesque. Her transformations dissolve, evolve and re-conceive the original images to become something known yet fully new.
Megan Greene lives and works in Chicago. A native of Buffalo, NY, she earned a BFA with honors from the University of Notre Dame in 1998 and an MFA from Rutgers University in 2002. Her work is held in the permanent collections of the Albright Knox Art Gallery and the Burchfield Penney Art Center. Her most recent solo exhibition was held at Regards in Chicago, IL.
