Georgia Art Express

In 2007 I coached an Ascham student named Georgia with her Higher School Certificate major work. I supported  Georgia’s exploration of printing, sculpture & 3d assemblage. Georgia was exhibited in the Art Express at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in 2008. Brilliant work Georgia!

Artist’s statement

Drawing inspiration from Australian artists such as Bernard Ollis and the Strutt sisters, my artwork is an attempt to explore the power of simplicity and the naive symbolism as a means of bridging the communication divide that separates us.Georgia D ArtXpress 2008 My artwork is an extension of drawings done by a brave, young boy, Daniel Harris, a close family friend who is hearing-impaired and living with cerebral palsy. Daniel’s artwork, while naïve in style, expresses a purity of thought and reflects an understanding of the common consciousness.
