Geneva Sills (b. Chicago, 1987) lives and works in Glasgow. Sills’ practice attempts to bridge the gap between photography and painting through auto-fictitious gestures and the deconstruction of film/print media. The work points back to the process and her own hand while focusing closely on the materiality of photography ahead of any subject matter depicted. Sills staged her first solo exhibition, titled Cones & Eggs, in 2016 at the Intermedia Gallery, Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow.
Her group shows include: SUMMA, The Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh, Scotland (2017); Karla Leyva & Geneva Sills, The Chalton Gallery, London, United Kingdom (2017); Salon Sebastian Monteux, as part of Glasgow International, Glasgow, United Kingdom (2016).
