Artist Statement

Saint Sebastian and his Cat by Corinne Geertsen
Saint Sebastian and his Cat

I assemble my works digitally from photos of my ancestors
and from my expanding archive of over 70,000 photos.

It’s all about remix.

I’m on a constant photographic scavenger hunt, outfitting
ancestors
with backdrops, sidekicks and belongings.

I print my work myself in small editions on archival photo paper
with pigment inks.

My images are quirky visual narratives about psychological
predicaments.
I especially like a good plight.

My art leans toward surrealism, as it has odd juxtapositions,
non-sequiturs, and an element of surprise.

My work content mirrors personal, political and global
situations
– in a sly way.

My work is a packrat’s nest of things that are deeply a part
of being alive:
curiosity, humor, fear, rescue, individuality, absurdity.
