Geoff Diego Litherland

Geoff’s work explores the tension between the natural world and its grasping appropriation by human influence. It draws from traditional genres of painting together with the rusty surrealism of science fiction and the fantasia of abstraction to create parallel worlds that seek to not only question our perception of and relationship to nature, but paintings’ historical and current role in that.

Geoff showed with Antlers at London Art Fair : Art Project 2015
