Georgina Bolton graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2012 with BA Fine Art specializing in Sculpture. She was awarded the John Kinross Travel Scolarship to Florence and received the Barns-Graham Trust Dissertation Research Grant.
Her inspiration lies in the geometries of the urban surroundings. She transforms two-dimensional geometry into spacial forms, creating a sense of energy and motion in still imagery. Color contrasts and effective use of black against bright neon colors make her works look very vibrant and fresh.
Her drawings and prints remind me of an abstract map. I see this as an endeavor to translate the everyday experiences into abstract forms. Surface visuals of surrounding objects are simplified and transformed into indefinite shapes, where their value is replaced by the motion and dynamics of the urban experiences. An illusion that confuses the viewer and reveals a new aspect of successful geometrical manipulation.
Working in photography, print and sculptural installation, she also experiments in variety of mediums including jewellery designs and bookbinding.
Georgina’s portfolio is a journey between mediums and dimensions. She combines different techniques, blurs boundaries between art disciplines and transforms traditional mediums into highly contemporary artworks.
