Artist: Jason Greene

In the summer of 2008 artist Jason Greene was chosen to create artworks for Fire Station 93 and Fire Station 136. As part of his orientation and design process he completed a residency with the County Fire Department. After spending many days and nights in Palmdale fire stations and accompanying firefighters on ride-alongs, Greene created four oil on wood paintings based on sketches from his residency. The works capture both the extraordinary acts the firefighters accomplish every day as well as the more mundane details of their jobs. Greene intends this juxtaposition to intimately document and commemorate the firefighters’ unusual lives. Fire Station 93 serves the growing residential areas in the City of Palmdale. The 11,000 square foot facility houses equipment bays and provides dormitory space for a Battalion Chief and Fire Department personnel. Both projects are part of Los Angeles County’s collection of civic art; learn more at the Los Angeles County Arts Commission website.

About the Artist

Jason Greene resides and exhibits his artwork in Portland, Oregon. In 2004 he was chosen as an artist-in-residence for the Portland Fire Bureau and produced approximately two hundred paintings for six fire stations. Greene writes that, “being around the firefighters was extremely humbling and it caused me to re-evaluate what it means to serve a community. I found myself wanting to create something not only the public would enjoy, but something the firefighters themselves could also appreciate.” Greene believes that his art is, “…the product of an innate desire to observe and record visually.” He has a BFA from Mississippi State University with an emphasis in drawing and painting.
