About me

Thank you for visiting encounters_art. My name is Genevieve Fay and this is where I try to express my thoughts about the exciting, ever-changing phenomenon we call art.

In 2019 I gained an MSc in History of Art, Theory and Display from Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh). This blog is a work in progress, my attempt to continue thinking, learning and writing about art even though my formal studies are behind me. I try to make my writing accessible and easy to digest, as I believe all art writing should be.

If you have any questions or comments, then please do get in touch. I would love to hear from you.

P.s. Some of the topics I’m interested in, and will be most drawn to writing about are: ephemera/graffiti, old master paintings, monuments, ruins, the city, romanticism, brutalism, art walks, and the everyday.
