Co-published by Macmillan and the University of Minnesota Press, this book traces the career of Brisbane-born, New York-based artist Denise Green, who has developed an international reputation as an exhibiting artist. Ingrid Periz claims that there is a genre-blurring quality to this book, combining as it does: autobiographical accounts; formal analysis; friendly chat; art history; and critical commentary. On the library shelf, she thinks it could sit alongside Judy Chicago's Through the Flower, James Elkins' What Painting is, and the recollections of Australian expatriates like Jill Kerr Conway or Clive James. It is also a guide book for young artists looking for models of career development.
