Melvin Geisenhofer

Melvin Geisenhofer (1941 - 2016) was a fixture at the Creativity Explored studio for over 20 years. 

Expressive color and repetition characterizes most of Geisenhofer's artwork. With oil pastel or acrylic paint and ink, the artist would create complex compositions of marks combined with figurative elements. Earlier works had more recognizable faces often with wide, toothy grins while Geisenhofer's later paintings tended to diffuse or obliterate the faces with layer upon layer of marks in a thick network.
