Artist Profile- Genevieve Bicknell

Genevieve Bick­nell is one of the young artists who  took part in this year’s 3 Har­bours Fes­ti­val in East Lothian. Her exhi­bi­tion was on dis­play at the Cocken­zie Power sta­tion, along with sev­eral other artists from the area. Genevieve is very pos­i­tive on being part of the fes­ti­val. “It’s a great chance to meet other artists”, she says. “It’s a really good way of being with oth­ers, see­ing what they do and also hav­ing some­where for your work to be seen by any­one else”.

The young artist’s work is abstract at times but there is a huge sense of emo­tion in all the pieces she had on show. Genevieve drew on her trav­els in Spain for inspi­ra­tion for the work in her exhi­bi­tion. She sketched the sur­round­ing land­scape as she jour­neyed through the coun­try. Genevieve’s work is clearly a labour of love as she explains the amount of time and effort that went into her larger piece of art. “I wasn’t sure what I was doing when I started it and it kind of comes out after awhile. It’s a lot of scrap­ing back and paint­ing over and sand­ing away. So it takes many many months and slowly slowly it kind of gets to where I want to get it”.
