Eli Geiser: Spilt Milk

August 2 – September 8, 2012


Swiss born artist Eli Geiser shows two distinctively different groups of new works. The “language pictures” are strictly geometrical compositions with visual words written in an originally developed color-alphabet. These precise conceptual paintings contrast sharply with Geiser’s second group of new work — carefully crafted assemblages of witty and evocative found objects. Although the two groups speak in different languages the artist’s tone consistently reveals a playful joy in collecting both words and materials.

Eli Geiser was born and raised in Switzerland and has lived in San Francisco since 2007. Eli was originally trained as a ceramics painter before receiving her degree in Zurich as a teacher of handicraft and textile works. Her work has shown in galleries throughout Europe and the USA.
