Georgia Arnold is an early-career artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Her practice centres on environments that promote contemplation and imagination. Working intuitively, across diverse media, Arnold blurs figure and field, fantasy and reality to create a succession of ‘worlds within the world’. She reflects on the innate desire to establish a territory—a safe, delimited space that permits unbounded speculation. Arnold completed a BFA (First class honours) at the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts in 2019. She works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. Her organic and intuitive practice generates artefacts that explore themes of worldbuilding, materiality, fragmentation and disposition.
