Hell Of A Time

Geraldine Swayne’s work is powerfully suggestive and mysterious. Like film stills, people appear on the verge of action, isolated in an atmosphere that is often tense and emotionally heightened, but the wider narrative is obscured. Scenes are often awkward, haunting, sexy, bizarre, or amusing – maybe all at once. Alex Drawbridge writes.

The source material for her imagery is diverse, from personal photographs to pornographic magazines, yet the works often share an oblique narrative that allows the viewer to project their own story.

Geraldine has exhibited in numerous shows, including her 2017 Solo exhibition at the Fine Art Society, Mayfair. She has also been a finalist in the John Moore’s painting prize and awarded a live / work residency at Acme Fire Station, East London.

Solaris are pleased to be showing recent paintings and limited edition prints, printed by Solaris and hand finished by the artist.
Hell Of A Time exhibition runs until 31 December. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 1pm to 6pm. Solaris, 76 Norman Road, St Leonards-on-Sea, TN38 0EJ. 01424 427392. Contact: alex@solarisprint.co.uk
