Genevieve Sawyer Males
Most of my work explores the body and internal feminine space using a combination of photography, painting, and sculpture.
I am interested in the realities of the space we inhabit and what it is like to be alive in the bodies we have. Transitions, thrills, discomfort, softness, visceral materiality, ageing, marks, and the precarious peace we often find ourselves negotiating between the body’s resilience and fragility are preoccupations that regularly find their way into my work. The body is our perpetual dwelling place.
Currently I am in my final year of study in Contemporary Art Practice at Duncan and Jordanstone College of Art and Design. 14 years ago I moved from the West Coast of America to the UK. I have always had a strong interest in the nuances of the human experience, and previously studied psychology, worked in literacy, and as an independent sexual violence advisor.
