Born in the UK in 1961, Fiona lives and Works in Emilia-Romagna, Italy and Brighton, UK.


From a background spanning dance, television, garden design, drawing and film-making, Fiona Geilinger’s striking painting practise centres around pattern and the body. Her design expertise informs an assertive use of the paint medium. Much of the source material is derived from the Southern coast of UK and Emilia Romagna, Italy but the figurative works convey a dreamlike quality that is difficult to locate. Geilinger’s thoughtful, expressive and often unexpected colour palette playfully explores positive and negative space through bold compositions and bright textures.
