Oil on canvas
About the Artist
Georgie Somerville (b.2000, UK) looks into the fluidity of moving image and the idea of storytelling through her artistic practice. Through taking early 20th century photographs of the East End, Georgie juxtaposes imageries through bright colours and bold line, creating abstract shape through silhouettes and shadow. Georgie scrapes away the oil off of the canvas, revealing the earliest marks and simplest forms. Instead of giving these figures an obvious identity, she focuses on silhouettes and shadows where faces and landscapes blend together. Georgie lives and works in London, UK.
