Gerard Greene was born in Dublin in 1956, finished his education at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 1991 and is currently living and working in Dublin.
Gerard worked in Denmark for a number of years, and upon graduating returned there where he had his first exhibition of printmaking at Gallery Arthouse, Copenhagen in April 1992. Gerard was a member of the Graphic Studio in the 1990's, however he continues to exhibit with the gallery in their summer and winter group shows. Although Gerard is primarily a printmaker, he also works with painting and multimedia. He is a member of the Freie Klasse art group having exhibited at their Better World exhibition in Munich 1998. Since 2000, Gerard has exhibited widely in Denmark, Germany and Ireland in various art venues. He has worked in painting restoration and as an art teacher since 1995, this experience has enriched his work.
Colour, energy, reflection, loss, tension, distance and places inhabited are some of words which would describe Gerard Greene work. Elements and colour interact to create mood, rhythms and echoes. However the qualities are not all formal, the work allows glimpses into a more personal world, where the past is made present.
