Still, Passing: Georgia Grinter & Harry Clitheroe

Mothflower is pleased to present a duo show of work by these two London artists, studio mates and friends.  For more information or to request a price list, please get in touch with us: hello@mothflower.com.  

 

Throughout art school, Harry and Georgia would sit in their studios, discussing the ways and techniques of layering paint and tone in drawings.  Between them, they reference artists for reminders and inspiration such as Althoff, Diebenkorn and Rothko. The pandemic and subsequent lockdowns put a halt to their in-person brainstorming sessions, which adapted into messages.  In this way, they were able to continue sharing and exploring their independent thought processes and wonderings in art-making.  Book-ended with self-awareness, their shared vulnerability is scattered throughout while often laughing to themselves.  They exchange an interminable amount of encouragement between them : keep making work, remembering that the act is part of the adventure.
