Andrea Geller

About the Artist CV

Andrea Geller is a NJ based painter. After studying painting for two years at Cornell University, she earned her BFA from Parsons School of Design. Following a career as an illustrator and graphic designer, she earned her MFA from William Paterson University.

Andrea is a painter who easily shifts between figurative and landscape subjects as she paints the fleeting moment of the form in space. Color and the gestural mark are signature aspects of her work. Water in varying states has been a long time interest and she currently is painting the figure in both the 'Bath' and the 'Pool' series. The wide variety of the color blue is prevalent throughout her work.

The 'Travelers' series addresses her interest in the study of proxemics, which is the space between people as they move. For this series, she paints over reclaimed maps. The specific location influences the painting that emerges.

She exhibits widely and her paintings may be found in many private collections.
