CORINNE GEERTSEN

 

 

My pictures are digital composites, the original is a digital file. I do a lot of digital painting by hand in each piece.  Many times I paint something, photograph it and add the photograph to a work.

 

I print my work on archival paper with archival inks in 2 sizes.

The smaller prints are on 13" x 19" paper in editions of 25 - $925 framed

The larger prints are on 17" x 22" paper in editions of 15 - $1,850 framed

CORINNE GEERTSEN - Corinne Geertsen's images are quirky visual narratives about psychological predicaments. They pull a lot of subconscious strings. The pictures are photo composites, printed with archival ink on archival photo paper in small editions.  She works from my expanding library of over 20,000 images. Often she will paint something, photograph it and add it in digitally.

 

The pictures lean toward surrealism, as they have odd juxtapositions, non sequiturs, and an element of surprise. Geertsen's intent is to psychologically engage and delight. She sees a lot of humor and psychology in the nature of life and both inform her pictures.

 

The characters are usually Geertsen's family ancestors. "I'm on a constant photographic scavenger hunt, outfitting them with backdrops, sidekicks and belongings" she says. She gravitates towards pictorial elements that are symbolically loaded. Symbolism brings in associations particular to the psychology of the person viewing the picture. The pictures are completed when seen.
