Georgia Gardner Gray: New Work

Georgia Gardner Gray’s practice comprises painting, drawing, sculpture, and theatre. Gray situates her figures in hierarchies public and private, digital and physical. With this backdrop, her subjects assert and lose autonomy. Gray destabilizes familiar objects, surroundings, and stereotypes to depict the present day as a necessary flux of multiple subjectivities. Characters form their personhood through an exchange of power, whether it is self-abnegation, control, or indulgence. Partaking in games of self-representation, they insinuate themselves into each other’s psyches.

Gray plays with the accoutrements of identification; how we decorate, signify, differentiate, and classify ourselves and the ubiquitous kitsch inherent in the process. Her reality extends far beyond a post-Warhol world where distinction between high and low has become irrelevant: critique culture is replaced by a desired reflection of self. Gray’s subjects exist in ironic relation to their environment; they are both a parody and the real thing. The viewer is left to probe what is being expressed as the operative word evolves from ‘kitsch’ to ‘cringe’. It is about coping: cloaking and revealing. Gray’s multiplicity of expressive modes and styles produces a space for the viewer to choose their relation with that imperative.
