Irmgard Geul

The mixed-media works of international artist Irmgard Geul are best viewed as contemporary landscapes and maps capturing, on paper, canvas or fabric a bird’s eye view of her internal creative explorations scanning the tracts of landscape below and the unfathomable ocean of sky above.

Born and raised in The Netherlands, Irmgard Geul grew up in a rural town south of Amsterdam. She received her art degree at the HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht/The Netherlands (1981-1986) and has been an artist since, supported by several jobs in graphic and fashion design. From 1993 to 2013 she made a sidestep in the equine industry and established an international shipping company named Nedpoint Quarter Horses, what did bring her from The Netherlands to Oklahoma.

Her mixed media work is constantly evolving in the urge to map her memories and to tell the stories of her adventures around the world and about rural Oklahoma where she has an art studio on a horse ranch, her home since permanently moving from The Netherlands in 2003.

Irmgard’s work was recently featured in the Artist Alliance Community, Curbside Chronicle, The Pauls Valley Democrat, The Norman Transcript, Art Focus Oklahoma, Oklahoma Today, Artsy Shark and on OETA/Gallery America. Irmgard Geul’s artwork has been in group and solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the U.S. and Internationally. She has private and corporate collectors around the world.

Artist Statement

Through trusting my intuition to guide me, I follow the flowing stream of my most intense emotions, gathering inspiration along the way from the bank of my collection of memories as the source and raw materials for creating my mixed media collages.

My most recent work I like to be known as “Embroidery Paintings” a self explored technique where I apply embroidery and stitching over acrylic paintings on paper, to create depth and a visual perspective.

Although I still have an continuous love for abstraction, for now I have been challenging myself in creating the stories and adventures on and around my daily surroundings.
