Geneviève Seillé

France Born in: 1951 Emerging artists
Geneviève Seillé was born in 1951 in France. In the 1970s, she studied Fine Arts at Wolverhampton Polytechnic in England where she lived for 20 years. She works on collage, writing as well as painting. She currently lives and works in the South West of France. In Geneviève Seillé's plastic work, the word reigns supreme. Object of fascination, only its visual appearance counts and becomes an aesthetic entity. This infatuation with the formal appeal of the word dates back to the artist's early childhood, where she reveled in the sound of the quill soaked in the inkwell and then its progress on paper. Awakening sensitivity, copying lines, words, letters then gives him immense pleasure. It was in 1995 that Geneviève Seillé took a new step by conceiving her own words, her “dense signs” which she incorporated into her work. Linearity and color mingle, giving his drawings a certain symmetry, a certain repetition. It leaves no room for emptiness. Everything is a pretext for filling, for "scribbling" as she likes to say, but a scribbling which always harmonizes at the end. In this mysterious area, full of somewhat chaotic improvisations, the mental fascinations and visual images of Geneviève Seillé come to life. Monstrous creatures, invented anatomies and always the word come together and offer a new way of seeing, dizzying and fascinating. "We will lead into a world where human bodies can turn into birds, or fish, or even unlikely framed monsters." Collections: National Art Library, Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
