Robert Green is best known for his complex, multi-layered abstract paintings. He is also a versatile, respected teacher and administrator.
His colorful paintings transmute the language of maps into double landscapes, narrative and episodic evocations of historic journeys, musical passages, and poetic expeditions into space-time. These nuanced works reward viewers by unfolding perceptually and conceptually over time.
He has presented his work broadly across the US in over 60 invitational solo or group exhibitions, has won 14 grants in support of his work, and has work in the collections of Capital One and Hilton Worldwide. In recent years his work has been featured in New American Painting (Vol. 14, 2009) and Mapping: Motion and Memory in Contemporary Art, an exhibition curated by Sarah Tanguy. He was also a finalist for the 2011 Hunting Art Prize.
Green received an MFA in painting from the University of Nebraska and a BFA from Abilene Christian University.
He currently serves as Director of the Fine Arts Program and Professor of Art at Abilene Christian University. During his career he has taught 32 different courses and introduced students to internationally-acclaimed art and architecture on nineteen study abroad journeys to countries like England, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, France, Hungary, and Austria.
