Doze Green
Luminosity in the Dark Rift

May 19—June 16, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 19, 7—9pm

Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Luminosity in the Dark Rift, a series of mixed media works on canvas, panel and paper by New York-born, Northern California-based artist Doze Green, in what will be his fourth solo exhibition at the gallery.

Green’s signature aesthetic combines figurative abstraction, organic cubism, fluid line work and stylized letterforms. Using an array of mediums with an intuitive, stream-of-consciousness creative process, the artist’s skillful approach involves rich layers of overlapping elements, intricately woven into tapestry-like compositions.

Green describes his work as "a fusion of universal law and ethereal dreams." His kinetic imagery conveys ever-changing narratives with infinite interpretations. Influenced by ancient civilizations, indigenous cultures and his own Afro-Caribbean roots, the artist’s totem-like human and animal figures represent polytheistic deities as well as the general populace of humanity, past and present. Through his paintings, Green explores a number of esoteric themes and metaphysical concepts including cosmology, mysticism, language, code systems, matter, anti-matter, the unseen and the void.

Doze Green’s artistic journey is an ongoing endeavor to act as a channel and conduit of energies. In his words, "to develop a better understanding of the natural and supernatural. Giving voice to those that usually went unheard. I always retain a sense of my origins, but am not wholly reliant on the past. This sparked my interest in metaphysics and the subconscious. I felt compelled to seek the inner root of expression and that’s where I began to discover the harmony within sacred geometry. I am trying to visualize vibration, sound and light."
