Cracks In Time To Open at The Aquarium in London
Swayne, Faust Starlet.

LONDON.-London based painter Geraldine Swayne will be launching her first solo exhibition Cracks in Time at the aquarium, showing not only her most recent work but also introducing a number of new projects – the publication of an artists’ book, a 10” single and a live performance on Valentine’s Day.

Painter, writer musician, photographer and film maker, Geraldine Swayne makes darkly seductive paintings which evolve from a metaphysical world peopled of strange, lost and loved characters, both imagined and known by the artist. These are coaxed out of paint and ink in a highly charged manner that shows a dextrous and emotive understanding of the materials and the subject without pandering to the illustrative. Her work talks openly to the viewer, while retaining its mystery and hidden causes.

Geraldine Swayne - Geraldine Swayne is currently enjoying collaborations with the legendary Krautrock band Faust as well as being in Bender with James Johnston (Gallon Drunk/Bad Seeds/Husband) and photographer Steve Gullick. She is also a photographer, poet and writer and director of experimental films. She once went to art college in Newcastle before escaping to the south of France and New Orleans; worked at the Wooster Group in New York, (an experience so dismal, it was a welcome relief to flee the theatre from the collapsing World Trade Centre); and for two years enjoyed helping rebuild “Hell” for the Chapman brothers. She also made the world’s first home-movie on Imax (for world-wide distribution), and is generally known as a good person, deserving of all things that the world has to offer her.
