Rona Green’s vibrant hand coloured linocuts were recently shown her a solo exhibition As ready as ever at Library at the Dock at the Docklands, Melbourne.

Green says of her work: “The pictures I make utilise animal hybrids as a vehicle to explore the nature of individuality. Of specific interest is how identity is expressed via the body; physical appearance and the ways it can be altered; the skin and its ​potential to be the stem point for transformation.

“The creative process, for me, is very much about synthesis of the real and imagined –​​ fusing an eclectic mix of reference material with observations to invent something otherworldly and absurd that is also genuine.”

Located at Victoria Harbour, Library at The Dock is more than just a traditional library – it boasts community spaces, makerspace, recording studio, a large and versatile gallery and some of the best views in Melbourne, including a large window display overlooking Victoria Harbour Promenade.
