Artist Statement:

"In her most recent body of work, Tessa Greene O’Brien explores the breakdown of recognizable forms as a reaction to the current socio-political climate. Beginning with elements from architecture and the built environment, the artist obscures these grounding structures with chaotic, churning atmospheres. Her paintings provide us with fleeting glimpses of specific sites that have been flattened by the pressures of color and texture into a layer of complex density. The forms can no longer uphold a logical sense of space or place, and reality is rendered into abstraction." Anne Marie Purkey Levine, 2017
