Andrea Geile is a visual artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Best known for her corten steel projects, her contemporary art practice explores urban and rural landscapes through drawing, sculpture, public art and social engagement. Her artworks investigate, condense and interpret nature and ecology.
Andrea trained in print making before studying Visual Art in Hanover, Germany and has been working from her Scottish studio since 1996. Her outdoor sculptures are made from everlasting Corten steel, often grouped with real plants and relating directly to the site environment. They are subtle interventions, merging into the landscape and are often only visible on closer inspection. In the last few years Geile has also developed indoor work using mixed media, including maquettes, bronzes, prints and photographs, where she explores how we have shaped and utilised landscapes for our political, economic and immaterial needs. She is participating in projects about biodiversity, urban planning and in Art/Science collaborations.
Andrea Geile exhibits internationally and her sculptures are in both private and public collections. Among others she has received Awards from the Royal Scottish Academy, Visual Arts Scotland and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
