NEW YEAR, NEW WORK & COLLABORATIONS January 31 2019, 0 Comments

Hello! Summer school holidays have been in busy, noisy, happy full swing.

I've barely picked up a brush! I am now officially chomping at the bit to get into the studio and start some work on some exciting new projects and paintings. 

These are all little (25 x 25cm) colour studies that serve me as a guide for colour and composition for my larger paintings. I currently have three big landscapes on the go that speak to this.

These paintings are great, affordable original artworks.


NEW EXHIBITION; Millennium Gallery Blenheim October 28 2018, 0 Comments

 

Greetings, lovelies!

I’m supping a Sunday peppermint tea whilst typing a quick update for you. 

October for me has been a month of commissions. I’ve been fortunate enough to paint some new landscapes for clients locally and overseas. It’s wonderful to know the people who will own and enjoy the works. 

 

 

Up next is a group show in Blenheim, at Millennium Gallery.

'Afternoon On Wither Hills'

‘Inside/Outside’ is an exhibition showcasing still life and landscape artworks from six artists. Looks like a fascinating mix and I’m thrilled to finally be debuting in Marlborough! The show opens 6pm 7th November and runs until 9 December. I would love to see you on opening night from 6pm, or call in to Millennium anytime over the month-long exhibition. Alternatively you can call them on 03 579 2001 with any enquiries.

'Late In The Valley'

Thanks for checking in. 

Have a wonderful week. 

Georgie.

Hello lovely people!

I'm excited to let you know that the first of my original paintings are now available in Auckland. Endemic World on Ponsonby Road have four small works for sale and I will be sending more paintings North just as soon as I can finish them.

Meanwhile, the studio is full of new works on the go, as I complete some commissions and explore some new ideas. Stay tuned!

MAD SPRING & ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM October 01 2017, 0 Comments

HI Everyone,

"A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me."

'A Light Exists in Spring' - Emily Dickinson

Not sure if it's the mad spring weather or just my creative evolution but change is definitely in the air.

I am researching abstract expressionism at present and feeling totally inspired by the movement that happened predominately in the 1950's. Willem De Kooning, Clifford Still, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline....

I have begun to cut loose in my painting and mark-making, exploring expressionism further in my work.

I'm loving it!

This new work is entitled 'Uplift' and is available in the webshop

or via RED Art Gallery in Nelson.

Exhibition RED Art Gallery, Nelson 17 May - 2 June May 09 2017, 0 Comments

Hello from a busy studio,
(I can hardly move in here right now!)

Just one week until my exhibition of new artworks opens at RED Art Gallery here in Nelson, NZ. So I am putting the finishing touches on paintings, darting in and out of the framers and pulling it altogether into a coherent collection!
It's been months in the making and I am excited to present this new body of work, in such a wonderful space. This collection is dominated by painterly landscapes in a rich, warm colour palette. Large works on linen and canvas and smaller colour studies on ply.

If you are in Nelson, please join us for a glass of wine at the opening on Wednesday 17 May at 5.30pm! Or pass by RED Gallery to see the exhibition which will show until 2 June. Any enquiries, just drop me a line.

Thanks & best wishes,

Georgie.

 


Moody blues March 10 2016, 0 Comments

Hello hello from the studio,

Just letting you know that the Moody Blues collection is nearly complete and we are looking forward to sharing it with you!

Moody Blues will be an artist series, that is, one-off artworks by Georgie, each completely original. These are expressive abstract pieces that have weather as the thematic link. Think stormy skies and broody seas... Balanced with some blue skies and reflective reflections. 

Here's a little taste.

More on the site soon.
