In Georgina’s oil paintings, she merges the pulsating energy of contemporary nightlife with the timeless allure of medieval manuscript imagery. Drawing inspiration from the enduring aspects of human behaviour, which she believes remain remarkably consistent despite the modern-day veneer of social media censorship, she navigates the delicate balance between celebration and critique.
The medieval scenes, traditionally reserved for depictions of sanctity, find an unexpected counterpart in the unabashed revelry of today's nightlife. With a keen awareness of the cultural shift towards self-censorship and sanitization in the digital age, the artist challenges societal norms by replacing sacred motifs with scenes of moral indulgence. In doing so, she invites viewers to confront the juxtaposition of historical and contemporary norms, prompting a reflection on the persistent dichotomy between appearance and authenticity.
Through her work, the artist seeks to celebrate the unbridled joy of dancing and letting loose in a world increasingly shaped by the omnipresence of technology and social media. Her paintings serve as a vibrant reminder of the visceral pleasures that persist beneath the surface of curated online personas, encouraging an exploration of the uninhibited spirit that remains essential to the human experience.
