About the artist...
Georgina Lohan is a multidisciplinary artist currently working in porcelain sculpture.
"The sensuous nature of working with clay connects me with my body, it’s feelings, experiences and memories. Excavating 18,000 years of ceramics history, which contains the worlds cultural heritage, informs my practice and links the Late Paleolithic with the contemporary era. This dialog between the personal and the universal connects questions of existence & equality, psychology & evolution, the fragment & totality, and helps contextualize the effects of advanced industrialization on human development. It has lead me to re-imagine the human story as a 3D collage made of porcelain clay, describing a journey of transformation."
As well as painting in watercolour, tempera, acrylics and oil, Georgina has a background in printmaking, carving, casting, fused glass, textiles, set and costume design, jewelry design and mixed media collage.
In 1997, Georgina founded and directed MIA Gallery, a fine art and furniture design gallery, and curated several exhibitions there.
As well as exhibiting her artwork, Georgina has contributed to the development of creative projects including the Eastside Culture Crawl as the founding director, and the AT8 Artropolis Society on the Exhibition Steering Committee, Anything Goes Art Auction/Fend Players Society, anniversary celebrations for the Surrey Art Gallery, and Railtown Studios 2012 Art Salon.
In 2016 Georgina was invited to travel to China with the Craft Council of BC to help establish an artist in residence program.
Georgina is based in Vancouver, BC, and has exhibited in Canada, Mexico, and the USA.
