Genevieve Robertson

Genevieve Robertson’s drawing-based interdisciplinary practice explores the material around the body and under the feet: water, oil, wind, silt, flora, fauna and mineral. Her drawings map a visceral engagement with place and often occupy the edge: the interstice between micro and macro, biology and geology, stability and flow. Genevieve holds an MAA from Emily Carr University and a BFA from NSCAD University. She is presently the recipient of a British Columbia Arts Council mentorship grant framed by the shoreline as a site for encounter and inquiry, and works with River Relations: A Beholder’s Share of the Columbia River Dams, an interdisciplinary artistic research project that considers the presence and impact of hydroelectric power production on the Columbia River. Genevieve resides and works in Vancouver BC.
