The Stairs: August 4 - September 15/Awst 4 - Medi 15 2018

Georgina is currently exhibiting here photographic series 'Memento Mori' on The Stairs here at Oriel Q. She says;

"I have always been drawn to the detail, close attention to the exquisite beauty in the minutiae, being aware of the personal significance contained within objects. 

Each item is framed within a compartment and holds a snapshot of one complete moment in time, combining with the others to depict the memories of life experiences, a framed portrait. The selected objects are carefully arranged, with meticulous consideration to orderly composition and colour palette.

I am interested in what is communicated, the interpretation that can be read from the whole and the parts.  Having researched the hidden language of flowers and the symbolism of Dutch still life paintings, I am aware of layers of meaning. A red rose is for love, a pink for gentle love, a white for innocence, and more is told in the way they are arranged, juxtaposed to suggest the pain and the pleasure."
