Working from her studio in Stepney City Farm where she is resident artist, Georgie paints abstract land/seascapes from memories and sketches of places she’s visited.
Georgie is inspired by the natural world, having been brought up in the Suffolk countryside, and tries to explore that relationship with nature in her work. She uses a variety of materials to build texture including polyfilla, mud and beeswax and paints with anything from her fingers to windscreen wipers. Her method is energetic and visceral.
Since graduating from a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University in 2015, she has had work accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Affordable Art Fairs and had solo shows at Boston Consulting Group, Palm Tree Gallery and Lavenham Hall Gallery. She’s had work shortlisted for the NEAC Annual Exhibition and NOA Prize and was winner of the Harry Walker Prize at the BSA Annual Exhibition. Her work is held in the private collection of the Museum of Goa in India and in boutique hotels across the UK. Her next solo show, at Unit G Gallery in Hackney Wick (4-19 October), will be based on her recent travels to India.
