Geraldine Ayers | Staten Island, New York USA
I am curious about how images tell stories. My work has always had a narrative component. It's sometimes a story told in images, other times through poetry and at rare times, in combination. I lean towards the metaphoric and the psychologically symbolic. I use a variety of surfaces and mediums to make marks. My inspiration comes from what is personally relevant. Recurring in my work are the following themes : isolation of the individual, the struggle to give voice to the unspeakable, and the unflinching exploration of the desolate.
