Genevieve Leavold

b.1980, UK. Multidisciplinary 2D artist, originally trained in theatre design. My work is continually evolving though it is grounded in a love of drawing, influenced by the explorative practice of Mira Schendel and the philosophy of Wittgenstein. I seek to explore the ephemeral, overlooked parts of my environment, documenting worn, overgrown or broken surfaces, recording the existence of decay and disintegration. I have exhibited extensively throughout the UK. I have work in private collections in the UK, US and Europe.
