QUEEN OF POP   Lisa Green - Solo Exhibition

Hear Me Roar, Acrylic on Canvas, 2014                         Michael Jackson, Acrylic on Paper, 2014  


Arts Alive! Opening Receptions:

Saturday, March 5th (6 - 9pm)

Saturday, April 2nd (6 - 9pm)

The Studio and Cheri Blackerby Gallery are pleased to present Queen of Pop, a solo exhibition by Lisa Green. Queen of Pop represents powerful images of American popular culture. Lisa Green celebrates iconic cartoon characters, musicians, and celebrities from television and film, in bold acrylic paintings and figurative ceramic sculptures.

Celebrities today are more visible and more accessible than ever before. We are able to view our favorite actors, athletes, and musicians from the comfort of our televisions, computers, and cell phones, at any hour. Through social media, fans have an unprecedented connection to the private lives of celebrities, in the same digital spaces where we conduct our own social lives. In this media-saturated culture, the right picture is a potent vehicle for mass communication.

Lisa Green explores the relationship between artistic expression and celebrity culture. Her portraits are colorful and entertaining, like the celebrities themselves. Michael Jackson, Barnabas Collins, and Dick Van Dyke appear multiple times in the gallery, simultaneously, yet occupy different roles. Celebrity portraiture, subjects familiar to all of us, oscillate between actor, character, and costume - often inhabiting all three.

Michael Jackson, The King of Pop, is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time. His career encompassed many roles as a singer, dancer, choreographer, music producer, singer-songwriter, writer, philanthropist, musician, and actor.

Lisa Green has earned her crown as the Queen of Pop. Lisa is a full-time artist at The Studio, which allows her the freedom to practice many art forms, including ceramic sculpture, mosaics, drawing, and painting. In addition to the visual arts, Lisa also enjoys acting, dance, video production, and music. She is the backbone of The Studio’s band, the drummer for The Gallery Beatz.

Lisa Green lights up a room. She is loud, vivacious, bold, and charming - and so is her artwork. She paints what she knows and what she loves. When selecting her subject matter, Lisa paints characters whom she aspires to be more like.
