Georgie Hopton

Announcing 4 new works by Georgie Hopton...

 

These powerful new works use a polymer gravure method, holding onto the definition of photography but with the added depth of a hand printed surface, thus allowing the works to live somewhere between the two. Hopton's previous relationship with scale is re-considered here, as she takes us towards life size....skin surfaces are exposed & intimacy explored in these classic, sensual images.  

 

'Attendent' ,'The Player'  and 'The Prize' - Published in editions of 25. Gravure on BFK Rives Naturel 280 gsm, 50.8 x 39.5 cms. £385 & vat.

'Siren' - Published in an edition of 40. Gravure on BFK Rives Naturel 280gsm, 38.8 x 54.5 cms. £415 & vat
 

Georgie Hopton was born in 1967 in North Yorkshire.
After studying at St Martins she has continued to expand her use of different medium, not caring to settle on one as definitive. Her works in photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture are made in conjunction recently with wallpaper and fabric designs – a natural extension of the vegetable prints she makes each summer from her temporary but extensive vegetable garden. Self portraits, studies of flowers and still life are consistent subject threads, woven through forays into abstraction and decoration. Like her heroes of the Wiener Werkstaette and The Arts And Crafts Movement, her heart lies in creation with no boundaries, the melding of art and life, the one reflecting and intersecting the other.

 

Shows include The Wounded Tulip, Poppy Sebire, London (2012), Sweethearts, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, London (2012), The Naked Gardener, Brancolini Grimaldi, Rome (2011), Independence, South London Gallery (2003), Laughed - I Could Have Cried, Milton Keynes Gallery (2003), Sweet Exhibition!, Cabinet Gallery, London (1997). Her work is housed in several permanent collections including the Arts Council Collection.

'There is an irresistable push and pull between object and surface, the photographic and rendered surface. In these images, we journey back through the wallpapered rooms of our childhood, wading through discarded sweet wrappers, ripped off paper from birthday presents and the spilled contents of the mend and make box on our way.
Georgie Hopton's work is a quiet virtuosic hall of mirrors. Her sad-happy flowers are mini monuments to vulnerability, the melancholy of decay twinned with droll hope'   - Katie Puckrik
