I’m currently bouncing between several pieces, trying to create a variety of depictions to capture the magical and most mysterious act of ‘synapse’.
I am really excited about the invitation I received to partner with Color ATL, a new creative initiative bringing together 40 Atlanta-based artists in the effort to produce a most unique adult coloring book.
I have been most humbled by the interest not only in my artwork, but the personal journey that accompanies. Being a present parent and a practicing artist seems to be a topic with which many can relate.
Today, I waded through junk mail, tax forms, notifications, bills, grant applications, etc. while feeling trapped and disappointed that another potential day in the studio had been eaten up by the locusts of adulthood.
I appreciate getting the opportunity to hang my art in places where it intersects with people’s everyday lives.
At this point, if I manage to even make it to my own art reception, I will consider it a huge accomplishment.
There has been a steady momentum developing over the past year for ‘The Neuron Series’. Building such a focused body of work and having it consistently circulating through the public has been a new experience for me.
My name is Geinene, and I am a creative binger.

As an artist, I am always concerned with being authentically present in my work. This ‘being present’ is fueled by my honest dwelling in daily life, home, society, issues and in the lives of those around me.
I find the process of creating a piece of art similar to that of rearing children.
There is a certain beauty I have experienced in having the opportunity to exhibit my art in my own community.
The show is on, the work is up. Who knew we could pull it together in the end?
While in Germany at The Art Factory, I have finally had the mental and physical space needed to embark on a new art series.
A little boy in a big museum, that is how we started this stage of our art appreciation efforts here in Europe.
No matter what country I find myself in, if I walk into an art studio, it immediately feels like home.
Good art wrecks me, stirring my inner core, and leaving me uncomfortably raw.
I have been ruminating on ideas for a potential artwork series for nearly two years. I don’t think I have ever had such a long incubation time for a concept
My studio has been under-utilized these last few months. While, much of life has been the reason, there is also the excuse of it being ‘under construction’.
