Genevieve Camille Jackson is a visual artist living and working in Melbourne, Australia. Genevieve has a Bachelor of Visual Arts with Honours from The University of Sydney (Sydney College of the Arts). Genevieve considers the act of creation to be a potent effector of catharsis. The practice of art facilitates the exorcism of powerful emotions, whether they are tangible or boil up from the depths of the subconscious during the artistic process. In her own work this turbulent undercurrent often appears in the form of dark, surreal and provocative subject matter.

Genevieve works in a neo-primitivist/expressionist style and is influenced by artists such as Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Wifredo Lam, Del Kathryn Barton and Patricia Piccinini. She derives additional inspiration from nature; especially the Australian landscape and beautiful places she has lived in and travelled to. Biological illustration is often a point of departure for her paintings, in which animals and people are contorted and stretched in search of the boundaries between entity and environment.
