Denise Green: The Heide Collection

This exhibition in Heide II traces 40 years of painting and drawing by Denise Green, an expatriate Australian artist born in Brisbane in 1946, who has lived in New York since 1969.

Green’s earliest works in the exhibition are drawn from a series that featured in the Whitney’s New Image Painting exhibition in 1978, which identified a new generation of artists whose work re-introduced the depiction of objects in response to the pure abstraction of the 1960s. Her objects are characteristically simple and archetypal: a fan, a tree, a needle, a vessel, often centrally presented against a reduced background.
