Scott Greene studied at California College of Arts before receiving his BFA from San Francisco Art Institute, and his MFA from the University of New Mexico. Adopting the language and finish of classical painting, Greene employs historical references as a tool to humorously examine the relationship between politics, nature and culture.
Greene's work has been included in exhibitions at the Schneider Art Museum, Southern Oregon University, Ashland; the Palo Alto Art Center; the Triton Museum, Santa Clara; the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, California; the Arnot Museum of Art, Elmira, New York; the Austin Museum of Art, Texas; Carlsbad Museum & Art Center; New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe; the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History; and Roswell Museum and Art Center, New Mexico.
In 2013 Greene’s work was featured in Environmental Impact, a travelling exhibition originating at the Canton Museum of Art, Ohio with multiple venues, including the University Art Museum, University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the Art Museum at SUNY Potsdam, New York. Greene is the recipient of a Juror Selection Award, Lubbock Fine Arts Center, and an Art Matters Fellowship. He has also received a Juried Exhibition-in-Print Award from New American Paintings. He was an artist-in-residence at the Roswell Museum in New Mexico and has works in the public collections of the State of New Mexico Art in Public Places Program, the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art in Roswell, and the McKesson Corporation in San Francisco. Greene lives and works in New Mexico and has been represented by Catharine Clark Gallery since 2003.
