The inimitable Julie Green was by the gallery recently to sign and number the first batch of her new artist monograph, Phone Book, published by Upfor. The paintings of various people’s phone screens documented in the monograph were created between 2011 and 2017.
From the book: “I painted the first phone, my own, the day after I got contact lenses. I could see! And I was amazed at the beauty of the phone apps, a contemporary Fabergé egg.” Looking closer, we can read these personal devices as a kind of portraiture.
