Untamed / Georgia Szmerling - 3D virtual exhibition by Arts Project Australia

Untamed / Georgia Szmerling

Thu, 10/29/2020 to Thu, 11/05/2020

curated by:

Georgia Szmerling’s multi-disciplinary practice includes ceramics, painting, drawing and photography, with a dominant interest in the portrayal of the natural world. Rich in texture and highly expressive, her wild plant formations suggest a sense of lyrical movement, while her abstract, whimsical ceramic creatures exude a tender charm.

In her current exhibition Untamed, the freshness and freedom of the environments depicted seem to resonate more than ever after months of indoor living. The colours appear brighter and more saturated, the lines clean and sharp. These scenes are unrestricted, untouched and unburdened, and conjure a deep sense of longing for the experience they speak to.

Playful and filled with uninhibited energy, these works harness a kind of essence that underpins the landscapes, the rambling free-form line windswept and unbridled. They are a delight, and in the absence of (until recently) the real thing, offer a much-needed burst of joy and respite.

Georgia Szmerling (1979) has worked in the Arts Project Australia studio since 2003. She has exhibited extensively, including Spring 1883, The Establishment, Sydney, Melbourne Art Fair, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne; Classic Albums, Tanks Art Centre, Cairns; Renegades: Outsider Art, National touring exhibition (2013 – 14); BSG Works on Paper Prize, Brunswick Street Gallery, Melbourne; Group Show, Chapter House Lane, Melbourne; Small Universe, No Vacancy Gallery, Melbourne and the Darebin Art Prize 2015, Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, Melbourne.
