“Whilst Gray would resolutely state her works aren’t ‘about’ anything, she plays with tropes of feminine figures and dandiness in relation to gendered preconceptions of (feminine) performativity. Gray is foremost a painter and prefers not to be defined by her gender.”—Steven Warwick
This catalogue on the work of Georgia Gardner Gray is the first comprehensive presentation of her artistic practice. In addition to painting, this also includes writing plays, both of which are presented in the book. The artist's own expressive way of painterly reflecting on scenes from everyday life is illustrated by numerous color illustrations of her works. In addition, views from exhibitions, for example in the Kunsthalle Lingen and the Kunstverein in Hamburg, as well as more recently in the Galerie Croy Nielsen in Vienna, show that Georgia Gardner Gray always presents her paintings in a staged manner. In addition, photographs of her theatre performances and the plays written by the artist illuminate the diversity of this area of her practice. A text by the author Steven Warwick on the exhibition at the Kunsthalle Lingen and a conversation between its director Meike Behm and Georgia Gardner Gray provide an intensive insight into the areas of her art.
