Travels on Slender Thread. 2015. 70 x 39 inches, acrylic on paper.

Travels on Slender Thread #1 (America)

Travels on Slender Thread, materialize a set of poems written by Geyer as part of her recent work Time Tenderness, commissioned for the opening of the new Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 2015. The poems are based on Geyer’s expansive research in women’s contribution to Modernism. Appearing as a script to be performed as well as a transcript of something that happened, the associative words painted press through the surface of the painting, seemingly moving forward and backward in time. Their bodily presence and skin like texture offer a viewer a mirror to unfold within their poetic prepositions.
