A-M Gallery - Georgina Pollard
A beautiful narrative between what was and what is now.
I had the opportunity to interview Georgina on Radio via Eastside FM 89.7 while I co hosted ‘Doc Lisa’s What were you thinking’ half hour Art’s program, and we talked about her work and her life, just click on play at the bottom of this post and you can listen to the interview.
‘Through Line’ is Georgina’s first Solo and a strong solo too, starting her public visual art life in a quietly confident way, although these works are quite vocal as most of them come down on us like a tonne of bricks through their conception and perception. They act as though they are fragile ancient cloths but through their birth they have the strength of 10 wild horses.
I’ve not seen any work like this in my Art scene journeys, which is always a wonderful surprise when you see something new and they do have the ‘wow’ factor. I love how the paint has melded and makes it look like it’s been woven when it hasn’t and the ragged edges torn by gravity to the floor.
Seeing is believing and and it’s always good to be in the presence of talented people.
