Visual Art – Perth, WA

Daughter and granddaughter to landscape painters, Georgia has been immersed in drawing and painting since an early age. She has recently emerged as a professional fine artist, beginning her career with a series of works driven by an interest in surrealism and dreams. Combined with her upbringing on the coastline of South Western Australia and a love of the ocean, this interest has manifested in large-scale abstract paintings where waterscapes are used as a visual material to distort; as if warped through a strange lens, or melted on a hot day. Georgia’s soft brushstrokes of turquoise and sparkling light are haunting yet benevolent, invoking a drowsy feeling like falling asleep on a beach. Georgia’s more symbolic paintings feature dream-like visions of dunes or desert landscapes as faded backdrops to neatly arranged iconography, often obscured by a whitewash of sand or smoke. These delicate items are like the gathered elements of a long-forgotten story; hinting at a meaning that’s slipped away over centuries - or perhaps just upon waking. Georgia is also a budding fine art photographer, and her ethereal travel images from sun-drenched places carry the same aesthetics and emotional qualities as her paintings, complementing them in a cohesive body of work designed to allure and enchant. ...more
