Georgie Hopton uses monoprints, hand-blocking and collage to disrupt the conventions of still-life. Choosing flowers and fruits from her garden, the plants take on new forms and significances across textiles and wallpaper as well as works on paper.
‘Each summer I gather my excess crop, haul it into the studio and cut it up. Dried flower stems crammed into vases, gathered the season previous, the Leather Leaf Viburnum outside the door, thicker and brighter, despite my annual plucking, and the harvest heap, all await my usual pilfering and tinkering. My work is a result of these encircling riches and the now habitual printing that feels like a natural response to all this excess’ - Georgie Hopton.
