Martin Geiger is a figurative painter and draughtsman who works and lives in Staunton, Virginia. He received an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant in 2018 and graduated in 2019, after four years, from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. He currently teaches at the Beverly Street Studio School in Staunton and works part-time at Bronzecraft Foundry in Waynesboro, VA.
Words that describe his work might include light, geometry, space and activity. He is constantly chasing implied grandeur and action, compelling him to explore constantly to find the most invigorating subjects in my immediate area. While he tends to return to oil painting, his curiosity often lures him into other mediums like graphite and charcoal, watercolors and inks, and even sculpture.
