Georgie Wilkin

Georgie Wilkin works with the complex uncertainties of life by creating expressive works that defy literal and rational understanding. Her paintings and sculptures can be seen at first glance to mean one thing, only to reveal deeper and more complex intention as time and memory come into play; as such the artist is concerned with impression, interpretation and the unflinching desire for meaning or purpose.

All of Wilkin’s works also draw on a fascination with the subconscious and preconscious associations which affect our everyday movements, often working with unusual materials and non-local colour to bypass rational interpretation. Her paintings are visual conclusions to a long standing fascination with internal and external workings of the mind in relation to its surroundings, the insistence on meaning and the power of uncertainty. Canvases act as recipients for a curiosity of both mind and body, resulting in perplexingly beautiful images that defy rationale.

Rooted in psychoanalytic and philosophical theory, the artist resists many artistic traditions in favour of a more instinctive process and creates work that is both representational and abstract. As a result she is very interested in how the work informs an experience of being human, and in turn begins to make sense of it.

Born in London in 1990, the artist is currently studying BA Sculpture at Camberwell College of Arts.
