Geoff Woodard Fine Art Photography
I began doing photography in 1977 at the University of New Mexico. It was liberating for an admittedly mediocre painter and drawer. At the time I was interested in Field Painting. For me it was an evolution from Abstract Expressionism. My earliest photographic influence was Aaron Siskind. I began to do a lot of non-silver printing and made small objects using the non-silver imagery. After graduating from UNM with a BFA I entered graduate school at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. I continued doing non-silver printing and made a lot more boxes and objects. My claim to fame was gum printing using phosphorescent pigment. The images glowed in the dark. I received my MFA from SAIC in 1982.
After graduate school I became a woodworker, building furniture and cabinets in Charleston SC. I still do this and have continued taking pictures.
