are you a kind of person who loves to get rid of things around you? make space for the new.
or are you the kind that loves to collect? and if you are the type to collect, then does it just lie around in the attic or do you try to give it a new life, in the form of something else?
georgie seccull is the latter.
an australian sculptor and installation artist who left the world of advertising to create metal art because she realized that she didn’t want to be the person who tells people that they needed new things all the time. other than the fact that she also hated sitting in office all day.
georgie always loved collecting hard rubbish and someone else rubbish just to transform it into something beautiful.
she says, “the thing i love about working with salvaged materials is the inspiration i draw from them. they all have a story, a history, and i think that definitely transcends into the artworks you create with them.”
she usually collects things like umbrella spokes, utensils, animal bones, paper, wood and machine parts. and this she uses in her metal art.
georgie’s work can be found in private collections and public spaces throughout australia. it has also been exhibited in the national gallery of victoria.
