About Geraldine Richards
Geraldine has always been creative and now paints to fulfil her desire for joy, playfulness as well as a sense of satisfaction. Using a flat, graphic style she expresses her interest in landscape, the imagination and symbolism by employing line, grid, geometry and nuanced colour. You may see aerial views, Australian landscapes or imaginary scenes using the house as a metaphor. Her work is influenced by her surroundings and personal history. For example she grew up during the Modern era of Design and Architecture and lived in a Robin Boyd house that looked to the hills East of Ivanhoe. The geometric shapes in the Boyd house and the vistas from that home are firmly etched in her memory and have made a strong base for her art work.
She won Best Contemporary Work at the Flinders Art Show (2016).
