Georgia's episode takes place in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. Tarraleah is a hydroelectric town, once with a population of over 5000, which now lays empty on top of an escarpment in the wilderness.
Georgia's work references organic textures reminiscent of natural elements such as rock, foliage, water, and marble, and she is interested to see how this stark natural landscape influences her artwork. Georgia speaks with local members of the community, and seek within these discussions the words or phrases that she will paint.
Georgia Hill is an illustrator and artist, specialising in hand drawn type based artworks that combine bold, monochromatic textures and lettering within experimental compositions. Since studying Visual Communications at the University of Technology, Sydney, Georgia's instantly recognisable aesthetic has developed from exhibition based illustrations to a primary focus on large scale murals across Australia.
Her focus lies in generating deliberately open ended lettering based artworks that can be read in terms of connections and relationships, time, place and community. By overhearing snippets of a conversation, or selecting words randomly down the page of a book, Georgia chooses her letters through a process of subtle abstractions.
