Shadows On The Ground July 14 2020, 0 Comments


Hello from Argentina,

The days are cold but bright; and the shadows are long.

The pandemic is gathering pace in South America and the local businesses are suffering. Movements are restricted, airports still closed, face masks still mandatory and the locals are staying in. The people here are used to crises and uncertainty and keep marching on. I admire them hugely. 
As for us - we are enjoying our last weeks here in beautiful Mendoza before heading home to NZ. It’s been a difficult decision to leave here but with so many unknowns and restrictions, we feel it’s the right thing to do. 
We are fortunate to have options and NZ is a great one right now.

A few images from the leafy autumn here...

 

 

Best wishes from me to you,

Georgie


Life & Liberties. Argentina. June 18 2020, 0 Comments

Hola! Welcome back  

An update from me to let you know that we are still meandering in Mendoza, post-lockdown. We can now head out to shops, restaurants and parks - with restrictions and social distancing. 
it has been fantastic to get out and about in our local neighborhood.


The autumn here is beautiful. Mendoza is a city of tree-lined streets and many plazas and parks that are crowned with richly-hued deciduous trees; laden with leaves. That, paired with the dry and dusty earth and the biscuit-coloured buildings, and I have a perfect palette from which to work  


On the home front, we are still homeschooling our three children. It has its daily challenges! And impacts hugely on my ability to be creative and get into the studio to paint. That said, I’m inspired daily by my surroundings and am slowly getting together a new body of work. 

Keep in touch via my Instagram account for all the images of daily life here in Mendoza and my latest paintings from the studio. 

Best wishes. Saludos!

Georgie

What a fantastic evening for the launch of my pop-up show at Wilson & Dorset last week. Thank you to those who attended! The response to my work has been absolutely wonderful. 

A huge thank you to Ju at Studio Home for whipping together this show with her amazing enthusiasm, style and talent. And to Amanda and the team at Wilson & Dorset in Wanaka for offering up their stunning space to showcase my paintings. It has been a fantastic show. 

 

There are a few paintings still available via Studio Home Art House - www.studiohome.co.nz

Now it’s a short break from painting, a quick trip to Argentina and then back into the studio, full of inspiration and energy to restock the the website with new artworks! Phew.

Till then,

best best wishes 

Georgie

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. 


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.
