Georgie Hopton Solo Show, review by Katie Puckrik
The Wounded Tulip 


                                                                           Luxury Beans, Georgie Hopton 2011


In artist Georgie Hopton's world, decay is where things really start to come alive: tulips past their prime loll lasciviously from their vases, beans harvested too late gleam with a coat of gold paint. The Wounded Tulip is Hopton's second solo exhibition at Poppy Sebire, and she continues to zigzag between painting, sculpture, prints and photography, with side trips into gardening and craft. Her work is a quietly virtuosic hall of mirrors where sculptures start as photos, and photos begin as spring plantings in her garden
