For the artist Geraldine van Heemstra walking is an integral part of her process. Her practice evolves around her collaboration with the raw elements of the land. By immersing herself in the landscape her work becomes a translation of this vital engagement. Through the elemental energy in her work she expresses the link between human and non human interaction, reflecting and reinforcing the intangibility of wind and weather. Geraldine’s early career in Conservation of paintings has formed the basis of her interest in materiality, working in a variety of media ranging from drawing, etching, painting, and installations. She graduated from City & Guilds of London Artschool in 2019 (MA) and was awarded the Norman Ackroyd prize for etching.
