Geraldine Le Calvez is a Seattle artist whose focus is primarily natural sculpture. The presented pieces are composed of lichen and acrylic on canvas. Each piece of lichen is individually prepared, hand painted, and mounted on stretched canvas. The technique creates a 3 dimensional structures. Her main objective, is to give the impression that the piece is reaching out to the spectator.
Thank you so much.
Born and raised in Upstate, New York, I moved to Seattle in 2009. Since then I’ve gradually found myself becoming a photographer of sorts. I started taking photos of some of my fellow musicians around downtown Seattle before moving further on to street photography. Fine art photography became an influence as well, and I began to experiment with combining the styles. Minimalism, film noir, surrealism and realism are all components in my approach to photography. I seek to capture an authentic moment and synthesize it with a sense of mystery, enough to suggest a story. I prefer dark, moody scenes, settings and people.
I like to play with traditional materials until I feel that I've created something fresh and innovative. Starting with a geometric, concrete image, I layer over it until it forms a more organic, unified visual space. The visual imagery details both disintegration and construction of physical space, revealing how seemingly diametrically opposed discourses are entangled in a given painting.
