Géraldine Swatridge was born in France and now lives and works in North Wales. She graduated from Bangor University in 2017 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (first class).
Her work addresses the psychological levels of internal life, incorporating subjects such as insomnia, illness, mental illness, grieving, reflection on the human condition and our preoccupations and exploring the ways human beings deal with these experiences. In the past her work has focused on schizophrenia, investigating various aspects of the condition by deconstructing images of cold, still, deserted and atmospheric landscapes through progressive abstraction. This gradual deconstruction through abstraction is a recurrent thought process in her work.
Her practice expresses her thoughts and research through the media of painting, mixed media and printing and is usually a mixture of preplanned preparations and intuitive actions.
