Geneviève Seillé

Geneviève Seillé is a French artist whose extraordinary, irregularly-shaped works on paper, constructions and bookworks are covered with a bold mixture of writing, numbers and images that are organised in a personal and secret geometry. Born in France in 1951, Seillé came to England in the 1970s, where she lived for over two decades before she returned to south-west France. In response to feeling isolated as a foreigner in England, she began to devise her own "cosmology". Her work has affinities with Art Brut and her influences include the work of Jean Dubuffet. Seillé is represented in many international collections,  including he Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry, Florida, USA, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the MacArthur Foundation, USA. Her book-works are represented in the National Art Library in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Selected works by the artist are shown here - other works will be added shortly.
