Continuing with her “dirty/pretty” style, Geary explores the complex dualities of women in her latest body of work, “Genesis”. Carefully selected creative friends and acquaintances served as muses for this particular collection of quasi-self-portraiture. Geary illustrates her focused parallel views of women as beautiful, yet tough. Strong, yet vulnerable. Incorporating her background as an abstract painter, she lays rough accents of color over her subjects to contrast their soft beauty and highlight their respective dualities.

“I feel accomplished and satisfied with this new body of work. I chose to title my show “Genesis” because I feel these paintings represent the beginning of a new chapter in my life and a new direction in my career as an artist.” - Jacki Geary

Jacki Geary was born in Bergenfield, New Jersey. She studied at Western Connecticut State University and graduated with honors, earning a BFA with a concentration in photography. After a 10 year career as a professional photographer, Geary began painting. Working initially as an abstract painter for 9 years, she eventually fused abstraction with female portraiture. Using acrylics, pastels, charcoal, and watercolors, Geary continues to combine the essence of abstract urbanity with figurative beauty in her most recent work. Jacki lives and works in San Diego, CA.
