UK-based artist Jonny Green’s oil paintings of haphazardly-made sculptures are part portrait, part still life. He describes his work as a combination of the “carefree and painstaking”, images of crudely built subjects made of a strange selection of items- modelling clay, office tape, flowers, Christmas lights, and whatever else is immediately available to him. In contrast to the gleeful, almost slapdash making of the sculptures, their subsequent rendering in paint is meticulous.
