About

Graphite and coloured pencil on paper Signed, dated and entitled on the back Unique work In Geneviève Seillé’s works, the word reigns in master. It fascinates her for its own appearance and becomes an esthetic entity in itself. When she was a child, she experienced an intense pleasure to hear the sound of the nib filled with ink on the paper. Later, she tried to experience this feeling again while creating. Since 1995, she started inventing her own words and was led by her mental fascinations. Lines and colours melt symmetrically and repeatedly. She leaves no place for emptiness. In the mysterious zone of creation, full of improvisations and chaos, she entirely fills the space with all sorts of signs and collages and it all harmonizes in the end. She offers a vision of creatures, invented anatomies and words that fit together and show a new way of seeing, fascinating and dizzying. Geneviève Seillé was born in France in 1951. From 1970 to 1977, she taught in primary and secondary schools in France and England. In 1981, she graduated in Fine Art (BA) at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. From 1979 to 1988, she worked on performances as Le Banquet & Le Jardinier du Ciel, Wolverhampton Polytechnic, Once Upon a Time, Processions, La Parade de la Veuve Eploré & Forsaken Memories, Arena Studio, Wolverhampto and Stories from the Land of Pythonie, Lichfield Festival. From 1981 to 1992, she became a freelance teacher. She was an artist in residence between 1990 and 1995 at Stoke-on-Trent Museum and Art Gallery. She created collages, drawings in which writing has a major role and paintings. She also taught in schools in Warwickshire, Nuneaton and various other schools in England and France. In 1992, three of her book works were acquired by The National Art Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, London. From 1993 to 2000, she lived and worked in France and England. Since 2000, she lived in France.
