Mending Family

Greene uses the idea of mending as an integral part of her art practice – family relationships, memory, climate change, and the natural world. In Mending Family, the tragedy of her youngest sister’s death moved her to make a pieced photo quilt of mourning using images of water, crumpling them, seeming to destroy them before piecing back together, creating a new fractured image. She is interested in the power of art to mend and heal, inspiring her to create images from stories and memories of families past and present, as well as her own.
