Georgina paints gently expressive, romantic abstracts, which employ soft veils of saturated colour and flurries of energetic brushwork. The paintings are all inspired by the awesomeness of nature with the sky being particularly key. Its vast size and ever-changing cloud formations usually prove to be her initial starting point, from which she then incorporates other ideas and themes.
“I never tire of watching the sky, observing the changes in light and tone or feeling my spirits lift as I leave buildings to be surprised by spectacular colour combinations - especially grey tones - and the smell of the cool fresh air.”
Her paintings are not intended to provide faithful, photo-realistic works but rather to reflect an emotional and thoughtful response to nature and to capture the essence of these transient sensations through the medium of paint. There is an intentional ambiguity to the work which leaves them open to interpretation and subjective reflection. She is interested in the concept of spontaneous response and expression and hence her use of colour is often instinctive and impulsive – revelling in the contrast of soft, buttery layers of colour with a harder, gestural element.
