Georgia Szmerling’s multi-disciplinary practice includes ceramics, painting and drawing, with a dominant interest in the portrayal of the natural world. Rich in texture and highly expressive, Szmerling’s wild plant formations often suggest a sense of lyrical movement, while the artist’s abstract, whimsical ceramic creatures exude a tender, dream-like charm. Georgia Szmerling (born 1979) has worked in the studio at Arts Project Australia since 2003. She held her first solo exhibition at Lupa, Melbourne in 2005. She has exhibited in group exhibition in Australia including Spring 1883, The Establishment, Sydney; ‘Melbourne Art Fair’, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne; ‘Classic Albums’, Tanks Art Centre, Cairns; and ‘Renegades: Outsider Art’, National touring exhibition (2013–14).
