Artwork of the Day: Golden Light, Georgeana Ireland
Georgeana Ireland’s style could be classified as Romantic Abstract Expressionism. She paints to passionate orchestral rock music with brushstroke speeds that have been clocked at 238 strokes a minute. Her influences are past masters like Turner and Redon, as well as other painters of the Romantic movement, the Abstract Expressionism movement and the Hudson River School.
Georgeana will be painting an abstract landscape accompanied by music at Artexpo New York 2011 on Saturday, March 26 at 11:00AM.
Growing up in a town in rural Oregon, Georgeana’s artistic talent was discovered at an early age and encouraged by her grandmother, also an artist. By the time Georgeana was 16 years old she was painting more than three hours a day and selling her work. Her national debut was in Carmel, California, at the age of 21. Georgeana continued exhibiting in galleries and museums across the U.S. and has received numerous awards for her paintings. Her murals can be found in the historic Multnomah Hotel and the Willamette building in Portland, OR; the Sunriver Lodge and Resort in Sunriver, OR; and numerous private collections in Oregon, Washington, and California.
An autodidact, Georgeana honed her artistic skills with classes under master artists, extensive research and travels to art museums in Russia, Italy, France, Prague, Vienna and London. “Seeing the original brushstrokes of the masters up close has had a profound influence on my new work,” she says.
Since moving to California in 2002, Georgeana has maintained an active exhibition schedule with galleries, museums and private commissions.
We look forward to welcoming Georgeana to Artexpo New York 2011 and to seeing her exciting painting demo!
