Georgina Parkins

Georgina spent most of her childhood in Highland Perthshire, attending Breadalbane Academy in Aberfeldy, before moving to Edinburgh to Study at Edinburgh College of Art. After graduating with BA Hons in Drawing and Painting in 2011 she was invited by The Royal Scottish Academy to exhibit as one of their New Contemporaries.

Georgina's work mostly draws inspiration from architecture and how it relates to the surrounding landscape. Recurring themes within her painting include: architecture with visible signs of decay, urban and industrial spaces, suggestion and manipulation of the horizon.

"The combination of clean hard lines and flaky surfaces found in decaying architectural spaces intrigue me. By interpreting these surfaces through paint I aim to give my work a sense of history. The movement and physicality of the paint enable the work to become architectural objects-emitting the atmospherics and personality of a particular space."
