Observing my daily surroundings are what encourage me to create - to render the invisible visible
My most recent work I like to be known as “Embroidery Paintings” a self explored technique where I apply embroidery and stitching over acrylic paintings on paper, to create depth and a visual perspective. Although I still have an continuous love for abstraction, for now I have been challenging myself in creating the stories and adventures on and around my daily surroundings in rural Oklahoma.
Born and raised in The Netherlands, Irmgard Geul grew up in a rural town south of Amsterdam. She received her art degree at the HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht/The Netherlands (1981-1986) and has been a full-time artist since, supported by several jobs in graphic and fashion design. Her mixed media work is constantly evolving in the urge to map her memories and to tell the stories of her adventures around the world and about rural Oklahoma where she has an art studio on a horse ranch, her home since arriving from The Netherlands in 2003. Her work was recently featured in the Curbside Chronicle, Artsy Shark and on OETA/Gallery America. Irmgard Geul’s artwork has been featured in group and solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the U.S. and Internationally. She has private and corporate collectors around the world.
