Stewart Geddes is a painter/teacher who works at BV Studios in Bristol. He has taught from Art Club to postgraduate level around the country, and is currently an Associate Lecturer at Arts University Bournemouth. He has recently exhibited at Metro Palenco, Mexico City, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and Studio 1.1 in London. He is an Academician of the RWA.
Stewart makes abstract paintings informed by the experience of the urban landscape. He is interested in the way abstraction focuses attention on the formal properties of surface, colour and shape, yet at the same time can set up something that reminds the audience of the character of certain landscapes.
He believes that teachers with paint under their fingernails are very important in Fine Art education.
