Tattoos, science fiction, B-grade movies and secret societies – this is the fodder of Rona Green, an artist renowned for her prints and paintings of anthropomorphic characters. Champagne taste and lemonade pockets presents a menagerie of identities drawn from the last decade of Green’s printmaking practice.

Adorned with the tattoos and uniforms of archetypal gangsters, urban legends and ‘Aussie’ stereotypes, Green creates a fantastical world where dogs postulate as stand over men, cats become villainous masterminds and rabbits are fierce cyber warriors. Funny, charming and habitually disturbing, Green’s work highlights the link between social and cultural identity and matters of power, value systems, and ideology.

Rona Green is a La Trobe University Bendigo graduate and is currently based in Melbourne, where she is represented by Australian Galleries, Melbourne and Sydney, Beaver Galleries, Canberra and Solander Gallery, New Zealand.
