Flynn Geissel

OIL PAINTING AND PASTEL

Flynn Geissel is a Washington, D.C.-based artist who creates award-winning paintings that compel the viewer to confront nature's alluring mystery. An artist of note, Flynn has been exhibited in two American museums: The Corcoran Gallery of Art and the San Diego Museum of the Living Artist.

 

In addition to American museums, Flynn's work has been exhibited in London UK and regularly on the New York art scene at galleries such as NAWA and The Jeffrey Leder Gallery. Her work is in private collections from Nantucket to California.

 

A tour of the portfolio is a visual cascade, enveloping the viewer in somber meadows and frozen storm clouds. Lit by the half-light of twilight, this portfolio makes the viewer directly confront their internal relationship with the power of nature. In each piece there is a feeling of hidden forces, of something just out of reach that makes us lean into the works. Light and shadow are mingled, letting

the viewer feel that each piece may reveal a dark and beautiful truth. The works capture the transition between day and night, giving each

piece a feeling of poignancy.

 

Studying under master painters of the New York Art Student's League, such as Sherrie McGraw and David Leffel, Flynn paints in the style of abstract realism. In this approach, only essential details are executed using a high-contrast between dark and light.
