AN INSIDE LOOK INTO THE ART AND PRACTICES OF VISUAL ARTIST GEORGIE MADDOX.
ABSTRACT CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE & FIGURATIVE OIL PAINTER. BYRON BAY, NSW.
In my artworks I encapsulate the brutality, beauty, strength and vulnerability of the nurturing female form. I often depict the mother figure and newborn within the womb, providing a visual and emotive connection to the complete evolution of life.
It is often said that the mother and child are born together, my artworks seek to convey this joint conceptual birth.
Being a mother is the greatest honour ever bestowed upon me, as a single and first time mother I quite literally can not remember a time before my son came into my life.
Memories from a time prior to the birth of my child fall to the recesses of my mind.
I know those memories are there but my son is such a life force, that there they will remain… A distant memory of a time before I truely understood the meaning of my life…
