What would jazz, a musical art form, look like if it was sculpted into a concrete object? Jack Greene, painter and a sculptor, suggests an answer to that question in the form of JAZZ, a high relief sculpture made up of four pieces: Ear Listening, Seed, Ying and Yang and Wind Blowing Through. Mr. Greene will display this and other reliefs and paintings this weekend at his studio opening.
Mr. Greene is a graduate of the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, and over the course of his 55-year career he has moved from painting to painted sculpture and is now back to both painting and painted sculpture. His latest work includes multi-brush paintings and polychrome wall reliefs. JAZZ, his largest piece to date, was completed in 2010 and measures 52”x102”x8”, in other words approximately four feet by eight feet. On Saturday, August 25, from 4 to 6 p.m., Mr. Greene will discuss his work at the reception at his studio located at 46 Spring Hill Road in Vineyard Haven. On the following day he will host an open studio show at his studio.
