About Georgina Hooper
Australian artist Georgina Hooper is primarily a painter working with ink and watercolour on rice paper and oils on linen. She majored in painting in her Bachelor of Fine Art from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University in 1999 and her Bachelor of Secondary Education in Visual Art was conferred by the same institution in 2003. In 2005 Georgina was invited as a research scholar to Tianjin University, China to study traditional Chinese landscape painting philosophy and techniques under artist and Professor Dong Ya. Hooper acknowledges the importance of this time in China by the use of Chinese chops, which were commissioned for her at the end of her research study by Professor Dong Ya. The red seal is now incorporated as part of her signature for her works on rice paper. Hooper’s practice further diversified into large scale porcelain installation after being invited to China and Japan for 6 months of artist residencies in 2010. Throughout this period, she explored the potential of porcelain as painterly surface and as medium for casting in multiples. She now lectures for the University of Canberra in Visual Art across multiple discipline areas.
