Nicholas Di Genova presents Works on paper, Sculptures and Oil Paintings as a part of Green Man.

Green Man, a name coined in 1939 by Lady Julia Raglan describes a representation of a humanoid face made up of various foliage and vegetation, and has been found in many different cultures throughout human history. Mainly depicted through carvings, historians are not completely sure what the motif of the Green Man is meant to symbolize, and considering it is found throughout such a vast array of eras and cultures, it must have represented many different things to many different cultures. The motif of the Green Man largely went out of use in the West during the industrial revolution, and it is as if we as a culture have forgot about him, engaging in over depletion of natural resources and poisoning the planet with Co2 and other pollutants. Now, in a time of rising temperatures and ever worsening tropical storms, it is time for a return of the Green Man to remind us as a species of our reliance on and union with nature, a reminder of how closely the fate of our planet and our own fates are linked.
