Andrea Geile’s work is exhibited and collected internationally and she has won awards from the Royal Scottish Academy and Visual Arts Scotland among others. Her sculpture The Chlorophylls is nominated for the Saltire Society Art in Public Places Award 2016.
Edinburgh based artist Andrea Geile studied 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.
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.
