Georgie Hopton

- JUNE BUG

Georgie Hopton says about her beautiful hand made print is inspired by her  “abundant vegetable gardens in upstate NY – and each summer I gather my excess crop, haul it into the studio and cut it up. Dried flower stems crammed into vases, gathered the season previous, the Leather Leaf Vibernum outside the door, thicker and brighter, despite my annual plucking, and the harvest heap, all await my usual pilfering and tinkering.
June Bug is a result of these encircling riches and the now habitual printing that feels like a natural response to all this excess”
Georgie Hopton was born in 1967 in the UK, she studied at St Martins. Her works in photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture are made in conjunction recently with wallpaper and fabric designs.
Self portraits, studies of flowers and still life are consistent subject threads, woven through forays into abstraction and decoration, her heart lies in creation with no boundaries, the melding of art and life, the one reflecting and intersecting the other. Shows include; The South London Gallery,  Milton Keynes Gallery in the UK, and Brancolini Grimaldi, Rome. Her work is housed in several permanent collections including the Arts Council Collection. Hopton was nominated for the Max Mara prize in 2007.
 

Georgie Hopton was born in 1967 in North Yorkshire.
After studying at St Martins she has continued to expand her use of different medium, not caring to settle on one as definitive. Her works in photography, collage, printmaking and sculpture are made in conjunction recently with wallpaper and fabric designs – a natural extension of the vegetable prints she makes each summer from her temporary but extensive vegetable garden. Self portraits, studies of flowers and still life are consistent subject threads, woven through forays into abstraction and decoration. Like her heroes of the Wiener Werkstaette and The Arts And Crafts Movement, her heart lies in creation with no boundaries, the melding of art and life, the one reflecting and intersecting the other.
