Informed by her training in art photography, in Genevieve’s own arts practice, she uses multidisciplinary techniques including hand-sewing and cyanotype, an early photography technique. Her inspiration is drawn from the natural world through exploring botanical forms, working directly with plants, or utilising recycled and natural materials. Within this, she considers themes of time, place and seasonality.
Genevieve Rudd has led and organised community arts projects since 2011. She has developed projects with people in care homes, museums, galleries, libraries, youth clubs, schools, community festivals and in outdoor public spaces. In particular, Genevieve’s projects consider heritage, cultural and environmental themes. They encourage closer looking, enquiry through making and ask about the places and people around us.
Genevieve was Chair of Waveney and Blyth Arts 2019-2020
