I love working from direct observation, and exploring the subtlety and nuance of the human form and the psychological insight that can come from the intense act of looking. As a language and literature graduate, I am also interested in how portraiture and narrative intertwine – in painting as a way of storytelling, and creating the sense of a complete and believable world. This past year I have been studying with Alison Harper and Dan Coombs at the Essential School of Painting, where I am a lucky recipient of the ESOP Newman Young Artist Scholarships 2019/20, which has helped me enormously in developing my artistic voice and my ideas. Under their tuition I have been looking at how imagination, memory and feeling can be the springboard for making images, and I hope to continue this exciting journey. - Georgia Mallin, 2020
