Artist Statement & Biography
More than anything, I love medium and process. The more complicated the medium, the more challenging it is to create an object, and the more interested I am. Glass offers endless methods of application, endless variation. Stained glass, however, has not been explored much. There is a lot of uncharted territory in stained glass and that I'm very much interested in exploring.
Genevieve Geer is a Philadelphia based artist working in glass, metal, film and textiles. Originally from Massachusetts, she attended Parsons School of Design for Illustration and The Museum School in Boston for film and animation. She moved to NYC soon after graduating and worked as a freelance prop fabricator over the next few years. When she relocated to Philadelphia in 2007, she began to experiment with hot glass. She ran a local public access glass studio for a year before taking a 2 year glass apprenticeship in New Jersey. There she developed her blown glass skills, but was also introduced to casting, kiln forming and flat glass techniques. Returning to Philly and she and her husband built a studio in their Kensington home, and she started to work with different glass processes before landing on stained glass. In this one medium she found a meeting place for her training in illustration, animation and hot glass.
