"All that Glisters"

Acrylic on canvas
39 x 48 inches

Born in 1931, Bernard Green studied at Birmingham College of Art & Design.

He was a painter, print maker and sculptor.

His early paintings explored the use of line and colour, creating illusions of space using colour on flat surfaces. In 1977 he moved to Pembrokeshire in Wales where the landscape became a source of inspiration and where he started to explore themes based on his dream sequences, religion and the human condition.

His work was exhibited at The Royal Cambrian Academy, The Royal Birmingham Society, Royal West of England Academy, the Royal Society of Painters Etchers & Engravers and at various gallery exhibitions in England and Wales.

His prints were pressed on his large Columbian proofing press (circa 1853) which following his death in 1998 went on display at the Swansea Print Workshop.

He became well known in Wales. He produced a series of embossed linocuts featuring views of Pembrokeshire and in the 1980s was commissioned by HM the Queen to produce a view of Caernarfon Castle as the subject for the Royal Telemessage.

In 1986 he was artist in residence at the Graham Sutherland Gallery in Picton.

His work is ijn various collections including HM the Queen, British Telecom, Lloyds Bank, Gulf Bank, Kuwait, National Library of Wales,  Derby Museum, Haverfordwest Museum & Gallery,  Scolton Manor Museum.
