Georgia Saxelby is a cross-disciplinary emerging artist whose practise explores the role and function of myth and ritual in our daily lives. Her research intersects social psychology, contemporary cultural mythologies and the ancient relationship between art, myth and ritual.
Through expressive and symbolic paintings, objects and installations, her work negotiates between the physical and the spiritual, the intellectual and the instinctive, the past and the present. In doing this, she examines the role of the artist as myth-maker and mistress of ceremonies.
Frequently nomadic, her nest lies in Sydney where she recently completed an Honours degree in Painting at the National Art School.
