GEORGIE FLOOD


'Georgie Flood's ephemeral white voile,(is)daubed with an intimate black painted image of lovers' faces resting against one another – suggestive of a transient, fleeting moment, but also one which has been captured and preserved forever. A pile of masks at its foot, however, disturbs the idyll somewhat with a painful reminder of spurned loves past.' Anna McNay


Georgie Flood says about her work that it is 'her heart singing of the dark, moist, animal absurdity of sex; the joy, the clichés, the utter wonderment of love; and the intoxicating horror of violence'. For Tainted Love Flood has embraced the idea of creating a shrine including sculpture, painting and delicate fabric images telling of love and hinting at the fragility of the unknown and allure of the forbidden.

 

Georgie Flood studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London and lives and works in London. Previous exhibitions include The Perfect Nude, curated by Phillip Allen & Dan Coombs, The Space, Wimbledon College of Art, London, Crash Open, Charlie Dutton Gallery, London; Water, Woburn Research Centre, London,
