About the author

Georgeana Ireland is a Southern California artist specializing in large scale Lyrical Abstract Art. Her artistic process began as a child; artistic talent runs on both side of the family. As a teenager she painted many hours a day and she began exhibiting in galleries at age 19. She studied privately with numerous teachers but primarily she considers herself autodidactic. Her greatest influence as an artist was a period of intense travel around the world- 43 countries. She spent many hours in museums taking notes and "dissecting" the art with her eyes as photography was not allowed. She feels the museums were her greatest teacher. Her current body of work is large scale and has a dreamy narrative quality to it. A noted colorist she paints with thick impasto layers in oil and acrylic and then adds diamond dust, 24k gold leaf and holographic pigments. "Ireland's painting demonstrates a compelling use of color and texture which is only enhanced when seen in person. Her treatment seems to draw from both the loose handling of impressionism and the inner psychology of Expressionism" Miranda lash, curator of Modem and Contemporary Art New Orleans Museum of Art. Her monumental work "Twilight Mood" 6'x24' was selected by Los Angeles Cultural Affairs and Los Angeles World Airports (LAX) for display for 3 years. The Museum of Latin American Art selected Georgeana Ireland and Vladimir Cora to paint "Tres Graces long Beach" live at the museum. They painted starting with a blank canvas neither of them speaking the others language only using the language of paint. Georgeana Irelands paintings are in private and public collections across the US and she has shown in museum and gallery shows around the world.
