Genevieve Allen use colour, form, and negative space to express emotion and beauty. She has always been fascinated by beautiful things: art, fashion, interiors, books, and gardens. Creating beauty, and actively seeking beauty in the everyday, is an act of love – it’s a way of bringing optimism into the world. It is resilient and life-affirming.
Colour is essential to her work and is the foundation of all of my paintings. She is interested in the interaction and relationship between colours. Genevieve strives to create exuberant, and joyful work, capturing a sense of movement and harmony. She wants to let the shapes emerge organically. Her mediums are acrylic, graphite, and pastel on both paper and canvas.
Genevieve lives in North Vancouver, B.C, with her husband and and two dogs; Beatrice, a King Charles spaniel and Bernie, a rescue corgi from Korea.
