WHATIFTHEWORLD / GALLERY Presents "Master Copy by Georgina Gratrix", Sept. 4-27, 2008
Georgina Gratrix presents her first solo offering, Master Copy, at Whatiftheworld / Gallery. Exploring the traditions, techniques and histories of painting, Gratrix flattens ‘Old Masters’, remixes classics and samples Modernisms in this bold exhibition that explores just what painting means within contemporary popular culture.
Taking her own position as a young female painter within the concept-driven contemporary art world, Gratrix plays with stereotypes of gender, youth and conceptualism - to make an intelligent, teasing and visually stimulating exhibition using media that range from oil paint to pencil crayon to mono prints, with sincere and fun explorations of each medium’s use and tradition.
