Kelly Greene is a multi-media artist whose work includes painting, sculpture, installation, and photography. She is a Mohawk member of the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory near Brantford, Ontario. Greene began her visual art studies at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque where she lived for twenty years with her family but has lived in London, Ontario for thirty years where she obtained a BFA from the University of Western Ontario. She has exhibited in Canada and the US in solo and group exhibits, primarily at the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, Ontario but also Banff, Alberta; Vancouver, B.C.; Montreal, Quebec; Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Toronto, and London, Ontario; Santa Fe, New Mexico, and; Howes Cave, New York.
My art focuses on various environmental, political, and cultural topics, including the impact colonization has had on Canada’s First People and our Earth. My concern towards the ever-alarming condition of our planet has inspired works that represent Mother Earth as human, appealing to our species’ egocentricity, hoping empathy will be instilled and respect given so future generations can again thrive.
