Georgie Hill

Georgie Hill’s watercolour works manipulate traditional expectations about the medium, deploying tightly composed systems of line, colour and pattern to create hypnotic deconstructions of modernist formulas. Pattern, dismissed as a merely decorative element in traditional modernist schemas, becomes a core concern of Hill’s work, alongside a concern with the materiality of the work’s surface and the way the picture plane functions to contain and direct the often-chaotic energies of creativity.

Hill was educated at the Elam School of Fine Arts, graduating with a BFA in 2001. She has shown widely in New Zealand over the past two decades in both public and commercial galleries. In 2011, Hill was the recipient of the Olivia Spencer Bower Foundation Art Award and the associated one-year residency. Her work is held in the collections of the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, The James Wallace Arts Trust and the University of Auckland. She lives and works in Auckland.
