Janina Green: In Conversation with the Collection

17 May 2020—9 March 2021

Something in Janina Green’s hand printed, hand-coloured photographs of still lifes, landscapes and portraits, reminds me of works in the Castlemaine Art Museum.

It’s neither the politics nor the unruly experimentation in Green’s work which remembers the Collection, but more so the sensibility: from CAM’s dark tonal paintings to delicate small still lives, naked women, bold ceramics or remarkable chairs. In her selection of works from the Collection, installed as an installation with her own photography, Janina Green is in Conversation with CAM.
