The Geniarts philosophy: Transmission through art
The blood that flows through our veins is the same as the blood that flowed through our ancestors.
Our genes have colored our skin, sculpted our face, shaped our insides. Through the generations, we have passed on the most intimate part of our being from person to person: DNA, life.
And for its part, art reflects history, transporting ideas and evoking feelings. Our soul is nourished by art: from one person to another, our spirit is transmitted through art.
Geniarts has revealed that genealogy and art have a common essence: transmission. Both pass on to us the DNA and the spirit of our ancestors. The marriage of the two disciplines thus creates a unique, almost mystical, experience.
Geniarts offers you the chance to make your family tree the central theme in a work of art specially designed by a renowned artist.
The artwork offers an exceptional way for us to learn about and digest our family tree.
That combined with our identity at the heart of the artwork gives it value beyond compare.
Our artists come from all backgrounds.
Painting, graphics, watercolor, drawing, sculpture, photography... no art form is ignored.
Some artists are rising stars whose work represents an intelligent speculation.
Others are already famous and guarantee a safe investment. Geniarts has searched all over the globe for its artists and you can find them all together in the Geniarts catalog.
When genealogy meets art.
Geniarts is an association of genealogy enthusiasts and contemporary artists who made the crazy bet to combine both disciplines.
Geniarts.com presents you sculptures, paintings, drawings, photos,
posters,… including models of complete and precise family trees
elaborated following the most rigorous rules, imagined by one of the
many contemporary artists whose reputation is growing and established.
Trees are declined from 3 to 12 generations : agnatic (father ormother) or cognatic (father and mother).
In the past few years, genealogy has been revived with today’s
generation. This is due to many new websites and international events around this topic. Indeed, several youngsters have been attracted to this topic for spiritual reasons (existential quest, psycho-genealogy, family hereditary, intellectual an We now know with certainty that we inherit a genetic heritage and that our evolution creates our acquired assets.
Genetics opens extraordinary perspectives of exploration into the past.
Howewer, why should one explore their past when the present and
future are fascinating ?
In direct and indirect ways, all the flavour of the present emanates from its roots in the past. Furthermore, a history lesson is much easier to grasp when it is attached to your own story.
To build your family tree becomes a natural endeavour, to enable your children and grandchildren to understand their heritage.
To understand our roots helps us better discover who we are.
If, for some, this seems to be old fashioned, our exhibitions will, on the
contrary, show a playful and esthetic approach to this topic.
