Dean Greeno

Dean Greeno

Dean was born on Flinders Island in 1967. Moving to Launceston in 1972, he continued to return to the island each year to go fishing with his Father and Grandfather, gaining a clear understanding of boat skills and first  hand knowledge about life at sea that forms an important part of his family heritage. Greeno's arts practice centres primarily on sculpture. It draws heavily upon his Palwa Connections to culture and country, the journey of his people have been on through pre- and post-colonial times, and their future cultural path. An important aspect of this are the effects of climate change on cultural practice and  relationships with colonists on this issue.
