This catalogue, published with Bad Paper in collaboration with SMAC Art Gallery, showcases new paintings by Georgina Gratix. Gratix is well known for her floral still lifes and textured portraits, using brightly coloured paints that are thickly applied to create layers of texture within the piece. Her work has a playful nature and distorts the traditional idea of portraiture by reconfiguring the faces of her subjects.
The catalogue includes an essay titled 'Everyone Knows It’s You Anyway' by Rosa Lyster.
