Georgie Mason

Working from her studio in Stepney City Farm, where she is resident artist, Georgie paints ‘abstract’ landscapes or seascapes, from memories and sketches of places she has visited. She uses a variety of materials to build texture including polyfilla, mud and beeswax; she paints with anything from her fingers to windscreen wipers!

 

Georgie is inspired by the natural world, having been brought up in the Suffolk countryside, and tries to explore that relationship with nature in her work. Her method is energetic and visceral and there is a constant struggle for her to maintain emotionally connected with the work – which is what gives it integrity – whilst also stepping back and making it visually successful.

 

Since graduating with a degree in English Literature and History of Art at Nottingham University in 2015, she has had work accepted into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Affordable Art Fair, and has work held in the private collection of the Museum of Goa in India. She has had work shortlisted for the NEAC Annual Exhibition and NOA Prize and was winner of the Harry Walker Prize at the Bath Society of Artists Annual Exhibition.

 

Georgie has had solo shows at Boston Consulting Group in London and Lavenham Hall Gallery, Suffolk, and was honoured to be judge of the Young Art East Anglia prize at the Peter Piers Gallery, Aldeburgh. She finished a three-month role as artist in residence at Oundle School earlier in the year, and has very recently exhibited at the Other Art Fair Bristol. Her farm studio opens to the public almost every month for First Thursdays, presented by the Whitechapel Gallery.
