The Virtual Archive: Lorna Green

From Absorb to Zoom: An Alphabet of Actions in the Women's Art Library, my site-specific installation of digital prints with content derived from the Women's Art Library, will be on view at Goldsmiths College from 2 - 30 March, 2015.

In  tandem with the project, I am inviting selected artists with documentation in the WAL archive to send me images of recent work to feature on this project blog. 

Lorna Green is a sculptor and environmental artist who makes work in public places. She describes her practice: 

I have worked throughout the UK and overseas in urban and rural landscapes, indoors and outdoors and have made sculptures which have been both permanent and temporary. My sculpture is site-specific in that it relates totally to the site, taking into consideration the architecture, landscape, history, economy, ecology or mythology of the area.

I use a wide variety of materials relevant to the project -- wood, stone, bricks, steel, brass, bronze, plantings, rope, sand, water, glass, light, plastics, even feather, silk flowers, cans, hay and snow. I enjoy working on both large and small scales.
