BA (Hons) Fine Art
Georgia Graham occupies a practice that explores the flux of abstract expressionism, amalgamating the act of painting as a performance within mark making to create an event through painting. Adopting the approach of unstretched material disassembles the formal structure of traditional painting. Attempting to desensitize the preciousness of painting in a gallery setting, the work offers an alternative to the dynamic of painting as two-dimensional.
Fusing this with the interest in sublime colour and abstracted forms, Graham takes an open-ended approach to painting. Considering the immersion of colour and form to live through the emotions depicted in mark making is a significant part of her process, such as the way in which serotonin levels are affected within the mind when looking at painting. The highly colourful intentions laid out by the artist are an attempt to paint some colour into what can be a very grey world.
