In her lecture and in her book, Denise Green: An Artist’s Odyssey, Green recounts 40 years of developing a practice in Europe and the US, while maintaining her career in Australia from a great distance, in an increasingly globalized art world.  Moving to New York’s Soho to develop as a painter, she became embroiled in an art world that was theoretically and ideologically challenging painting. New York still provided a serious context for painting but it was being eclipsed and given increasingly less consideration. Despite these challenges she maintained her practice as a painter and shaped an international career. In her writings about art, she countered the prevailing ideology.
