"I am profoundly inspired by my years living in Barcelona and the rich energy that pervades the air there. I study painters Matisse, Kirchner and Kandinsky, among others and abstract expressionism. I have a working background in fashion & printed textile design. I drink in the beautiful landscape that surrounds me at home in New Zealand. It all comes out in the paintings."
The work of Nelson based artist; Georgie Hoby Scutt pulls you into rich, rollicking landscapes and for a moments quiet in a still life. Her paint palette sings of Autumn auburns, rose golds, smooth olive greens and the inkiness of blues - colours that seem to comfort and signal a storm all at once.
