About Georgianna Krieger
Believing that art is achieved through years of contemplative study and practice, sculptor Georgianna Krieger has worked over a period of years to create a meaningful body of work that includes sculpture, process drawings and paintings.
Krieger received her BFA in sculpture from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where she studied with Harvey Citron and Walter Erlebacher and was the 1990 recipient of The Philadelphia Plastic Arts Society Award. Today, she strives to reveal the beauty of the interconnectedness of the arts in both her work as a visual artst and jazz musician.
If you asked her, Georgianna would tell you she sees a direct correlation between gestural drawing, her sculpture and jazz improvisation. “The media are quite different” she says, but the conceptual goal: “to explore a fleeting moment”, is the same. Today, Georgianna plays with the Resonance Jazz Ensemble, Zazen jazz quartet and Dr. Dave’s Second Opinion.
Over the years Krieger has worn many creative hats including commercial artist and designer, while continuing to work privately on her sculpture. Her creative work has included clay animation, murals, museum exhibit design, toy design as well as sculpture.
Ms. Krieger has recently premiered to the public a series of very limited edition sculptures entitled “Time And Space”. These limited edition sculptures are hand cast individually. Each piece is hand crafted by the artist and each is unique in its details. Her figurative, yet contemporary, sculptures in bronze, kiln-cast glass and other cast materials, are accompanied by a series of gesture drawings.
She has recently moved her home and studio from San Francisco to Oaklandʼs Glenview District, where she continues to use traditional sculpture methods much the same as those which have been employed since 1000 B.C.
