Geraldine Swayne creates intimate yet powerful works in enamel paint, on small copper or aluminium panels.

“There is a subtle brevity of form and lightness of touch to Swayne’s style, which aligns her with artists such as Edgar Degas, and more recently Chantal Joffe, Ron Kitaj, and Marlene Dumas”. (Paul Carter-Robinson, Artlyst 2017)

She is also a member of celebrated Krautrock band ‘Faust’ and is noted for navigating the complex relationships between painting, music and film.

Nominated by Dazed Magazine as a “Top Ten Music-Art Crossover” in 2014, she has toured widely making musical improvisations and live paintings at venues such as the Wrexner Centre, Ohio, Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art and CalArts.

In 1999, she made the world’s first super-8 to Imax film ‘East End’, with music by Nick Cave and in 2010 she was finalist in the John Moores Painting Prize, Liverpool. Her first museum show was in 2014 at Magazin3 Stockholm.
