Georgia Dymock, Intertwined Figures with a Fan, 2021. Oil on canvas. 150 cm x 170 cm.
Young British painter Georgia Dymock’s lockdown experience resulted in a chapter of uninterrupted creativity. Her new solo show of human hybrid entity figures opens this week at London’s JD Malat Gallery, and plunges us into a sea of bodies conceived on computers and born on canvas, existing somewhere outside the mainframe.
In honour of International Women’s Day, it runs alongside an accompanying partnership project with the curatorial platform W1 Curates, whose motto “ART, NOT ADS” promotes the injection of art into the digital, public realm.
In true hybrid fashion and in honour of International Women’s Day, Dymock’s upcoming solo show at JD Malat is being rung in with a digital installation on the mammoth outdoor screens of Flannels department store on Oxford Street in partnership with W1 Curates. A stone’s throw from Oxford Circus, this strip of road is home to some of the highest concentrations of pedestrian foot traffic in all of London. The larger than life screen ‘canvas’ challenges the traditional media arena, inserting contemporary art into a context normally reserved for commercial advertising.
