  • Artist Statement & Bio

    I’m an artist/ printmaker and my medium of choice is the collagraph plate and dry point etching. I’m not particularly interested in producing exact editions and enjoy producing larger format prints. This work ‘Pasiphaes Passion” is a metaphoric expression of the blatant disregard for mother nature - a memorial of the excessive pollution from human behaviour with total disregard for the outcomes, those unnatural creations of unprecedented monsters which will exist.  Biography - Maxine Green Maxine Green was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia in the 1980’s. Green worked for many years both in the Film and Music Industries on both sides of the Tasman. She was always interested in the arts and at the age of 56 (inspired after reading an article about Rosalie Gasgoines’ late start at the same age), decided to enrol at Moss Vale Tafe to do a Diploma of Fine Arts. She has been a regular exhibitor both in the Southern Highlands and in Sydney. In 2008 she was awarded the Goulburn Art Prize at the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery. Her main area of interest is printmaking . She works from her studio in Bowral in the Southern Highlands.
