ABOUT GETA FINLAYSON
Geta studied BA Art at Stellenbosch university specializing in jewellery making and design. Developing ones own style is a challenge but essential, says Geta. "My ideas for jewellery design comes from drawing, mostly from nature. I feel that a design has to have contrast to make it interesting." She uses silver, gold, semi precious stones, wood and abalone shell and comments that the different textures enhance the design and then it has to compliment the wearer. "For me a piece of jewellery is very personal and becomes part of your personal style.
Her paintings were a later development and she found that colour had a strong psychological effect. She uses a lot of blue which has a feeling of serenity and peacefulness. The portraits show aspects of female identity, strong and vulnerable, coming out of different cultures and time to become visible in the present. The abstract paintings are very intuitive and develops as she works, often images appear as if coming out of space.
