Genevieve Leavold

Placeholder
Genevieve Leavold

Born: 1980

Hometown: Frome

Based in: Belgrade

 

Genevieve Leavold is a British abstract painter with a studio in Belgrade, Serbia. Her work is characterised by soft, sweeping brushwork and a rich, natural palette. She often works into dark backgrounds giving her paintings a luminous quality. Leavold trained in theatre design and has maintained a love of performance, in particular dance. She often starts a canvas working on the floor and moving around the image as she paints, this very physical approach to painting gives her work a soft and flowing rhythm. Much of her work explores themes of identity and our relationship to nature. She has a long held curiosity about how we form our understanding of the self and uses the language of abstract painting to express what she feels cannot be said in words.

Genevieve Leavold has exhibited widely in Europe, the US and UK and has work in held in private and corporate collections worldwide
