Tony Geiger has said his paintings take you to a certain place, but you have to find your own way back. The world he creates encompasses both classical surrealism and more contemporary concerns. Conflict is usually present. These mischievous juxtapositions make statements on the human condition—either politically, physically, or spiritually. Geiger wants the viewer to be challenged and amused by this mixture of the macabre and the playful.
A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York and a longtime NYC resident, Tony Geiger still considers himself a transplanted Californian. He has exhibited paintings at the Sideshow Gallery in Williamsburg, the Barbican Centre in London, Miami Projects at Art Basel, Ceres Gallery in Chelsea, NYC, and was accepted into The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program. Tony Geiger lives in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn with his studio nearby in Gowanus.
