"You didn't come into this world, you came out of it" - Alan Watts
I am Genevieve Leavold. Welcome to my nature inspired abstract paintings and drawings, in my art I am seeking to bring you to a place of connection and energetic exchange.
I use abstraction and create gestural oil paintings to explore concepts of self, and our relationship to the natural world.
Taking a meditative approach to my process my oil paintings are created by layering transparent glazes and opaque marks. There is a vital element of movement in this process: it’s physical: using large brushes to lay out the composition of the work and moving with the brushstrokes.
I have exhibited in the UK, Europe and USA and have paintings in private and corporate collections worldwide.
