Georgianne Fastaia was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1964. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from San Francisco State University in 1988 with a degree in Creative Writing. Self-taught, she began painting in 2001. Her mother, an art teacher is her inspiration. She encouraged her children to follow their passion and to take art seriously. Georgianne works out of Studio 27 at The Art Explosion on 17th and Potrero and supports her daughter Sophie, through her work.
Art critic Brian Sherwin commented on Georgianne Fastaia's paintings, stating, "I enjoy the physicality of Georgianne's process and methods. The raw quality of her paintings capture a psychological vibe that begs me to think about the meaning behind the images – and the visual relationship between the artist and viewer." Sherwin added, "These works provide viewers with a raw narrative... one that is both alluring and haunting"

I believe that to make art with all the questions answered deprives the viewer of the joy of participating in the act of creation.The primary subject of my work is the existential condition. I use abstracted forms to explore the movement between the joy of kinship and our ultimate alone-ness. The choices I make between figuration and abstraction, between what is implied and what is revealed, serve to pull the viewer into the paintings surface and leave them with questions. I strive for emotional honesty in my work and rely on an intuitive sense of color and an immediacy of gesture to achieve it.
One collector told me, “Your paintings remind me that I don't have to be perfect.” This tells me my work can inspire someone to reconsider their beliefs and expand their concept of what a piece of art can give them. I believe that we can transform our lives, and it is our secrets which make us complex, beautiful, and whole. This is the impetus behind every mark I make on the canvas: to “transform the mistake." In my process, I re-use old canvases, working into layers of paint, actively damaging and rebuilding the surface to give each a "history." My paintings seek to express the tension between chaos and order, between control of ones medium and knowing when to let go. I strive to affirm a more authentic concept of beauty while making paintings that express an evocation of mystery."
