With a method that is overtly physical, and her extensive understanding and use of diverse materials, Genna Draper creates mixed media paintings with varying degrees of representation, provoking curiosity and deeper exploration between the layers. Striking for their intriguing textures and desirable palettes, Draper presents work that is dynamic and cohesive on conclusion yet leaves room for the viewer to explore the decisions and emotional responses of every mark made.
“I paint because I love it, pure and simple. I love the chaos and the physical demands of executing my ideas into tangible works. Above all else, I love the connections I am able to create with people through my work."
