ARTIST STATEMENT

While steadfastly irreligious, Georgia Harvey sees positives in the process of collective or individual ritual, of partaking in reminders to regroup and refocus.

Starting with the idea of the ex-voto – a symbolic offering for an answered prayer – and extending to riff on motifs at once ancient and yet ageless in their familiarity, these assembled artefacts offer a light-hearted take on the benefits of regularly checking in with one’s own mortality.

BIO

Georgia Harvey is a Naarm/Melbourne-based ceramicist who handbuilds animalish forms and vessels clothed in a variety of textural surfaces.

Initially studying Painting at RMIT, she went on to become a conservator before finding her way to a sculptural practice, heavily inspired by artefacts encountered in her conservation work. She draws on experiences from several years spent living in the desert environment of the UAE, and incorporates materials sourced from walks up mountains, in wadis, or around the block.

She reclaims all studio waste for reuse, concocting ever-evolving mixtures that can produce fascinating and unique results.
