Brooke Georgia is an artist who works both figuratively and abstractly in drawing and installation sculpture. She translates the principals of her artmaking into her clothing line: "being." to produce unique pieces marked by the memory of her hands. Through her intense handwork she imbues her pieces with a brutal honesty that seems at times torturous. Each garment is heavy with an emotional resonance that cannot be put into words; only worn and felt.
'Brooke Georgia creates poetic, vulnerable, often confronting work. She plays with layers of meaning in her processes, imagery and materials. The drawn line is utilised for it’s purity and rawness, the essential tool in translating thought and emotion with deftness and vision. Collected materials and clothing are eloquently re-presented as remnants of bodily experience in her installation and sculptural work. There is both a violence and a beauty in her work.' -Rachael Slade.
Born in 1970, Brooke gained a Bachelor of Design in 1999. She lives and works in Christchurch, New Zealand, with her husband and two children.
