Initially trained in Fine Art Painting under the tutelage of the artists Sean Mc Sweeney and John O’Leary, Geoff became an art educator, before making a fulltime crossover to theatre. His training as a visual artist constantly informs his work as a director. Both art practices tell stories, and in the telling, strive to create atmosphere and fuse together forms, textures, images, sights and sounds to find those moments of magic we all search for. The work seeks to create atmosphere through distilling the memories and ‘feel’ of a place. Filtering fleeting emotions, sensory and guttural reactions, and the creation of a strong sense of place resonate more with Geoff than the making of naturalistic renderings.
Geoff’s work is included in both in public and private collections. His most recent solo show -The Place in Between was held at the Mill Theatre Dundrum in 2021. He has exhibited in number of group shows at Hambly and Hambly at Dunbar House.
A selection of Geoff’s work is currently available exclusively through Hambly & Hambly.
