With the advance of Instagram and other algorithmic tools, we are living in a time of renewed interest in
figurative painting, where this ancient media seems curiously alive in this space, Georgia utilises the painted
figure to bring about questions of identity and technology today.
Georgia’s practise challenges traditional understandings of her chosen medium as she combines digital and
analogue modes in image creation, where passages of flatness are an indication of her painting’s digital origins.
Physically rendered in oil paint on huge canvas supports, Georgia’s figures are composed of curling, distorted
forms which contort within the confines of the canvas boundary, where their exaggerated curves are inspired
by the generous, rounded shapes from Picasso’s Neo-classical Period.
Georgia is a contemporary artist based in London where she is currently studying her MFA in Painting at the
Slade school of fine art, University College London.
