Brooke Georgia - insupportable
Opening Preview Monday 3 September, 5:30pm. All Welcome.
Runs until 28 September.
Brooke Georgia works both figuratively and abstractly in drawing and installation sculpture. She is interested in work that has resonance, provocation and honesty.
'Brooke Georgia creates poetic, vulnerable, often confronting work. She plays with layers of meaning in her processes, imagery and materials. The drawn line is utilised for it’s purity and rawness, the essential tool in translating thought and emotion with deftness and vision. Collected materials and clothing are eloquently re-presented as remnants of bodily experience in her installation and sculptural work. There is both a violence and a beauty in her work.'
