Georgia Hayes paints subjects that have a visual or emotional impact, drawing inspiration from friends, animals and objects in museums. Her new paintings have drawn on a mix of past and recent times including Western, Middle Eastern and Ancient Egyptian cultures. Hayes uses sketches, photographs and images from the media and folk and street art as a starting point for her work, and 'Birdcatcher', is derived from a striking photograph in a newspaper of a man carrying a bird. The paint, colour and form dictate how the work evolves, and Hayes aims to paint with a freedom and fluidity that allows for the unpredictable causing the viewer to revisit the familiar with renewed interest.
