Rona Green is highly regarded for her fantastical figurative prints, paintings, poppets and drawings that explore ideas about the nature of individuality. Specifically her interest is in how identity is expressed via the body; physical appearance and the ways it can be altered; the skin and its potential to be the stem point for transformation – how the body can be a vehicle for narrative by means of transformative devices, particularly anthropomorphism and body decoration.
Born in the port city of Geelong, Australia, Rona went on to study art at La Trobe University, Bendigo, Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, and Monash University, Gippsland. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her printmaking including the Geelong Print Prize, Swan Hill Print Acquisitive Award and Silk Cut Award for Linocut Prints Grand Prize, and her work is represented in over 60 public collections including the National Gallery of Australia. She lives and works in the Dandenong Ranges, Australia.
