Anthony Green is an established artist whose career has been mainly in photography and academia - and latterly in sculpture. His photography is in national collections.
Some years ago he was exposed to the curious medium of Mexican Fotoescultura. This is a devotional carved sculpture combining photographic portraits with carved three dimensional busts. The result is discombobulating. Fotoescultura sits in a liminal space between image and object. Following two substantial exhibitions of fotoescultura, the training wheels came off and he transitioned into the synthetic world of carved mask-making.
He currently lives and works in Killcare on the Central coast NSW.
