Georgina Barney

Resident Artist
STUDIO A4

Georgina is an artist from rural Leicestershire and studied Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford (2006) and an MPhil, ‘Curating the Farm’ at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen (2011). Georgina’s main area of enquiry is into the relationship between art and farming. She collaborates with the agricultural industry, for example in a partnership with the National Farmers’ Union. She also works as a curator with artists from farms. Drawing remains fundamental to any project. Other aspects of her practice include writing and research. Major project ‘GB Farming’ in 2007 was a tour of 14 farms over 8 months, from the top to toe of Great Britain. Georgina maintains an interest in ways of practicing faith and art. She has worked extensively with Christ Church Spitalfields, London, as an artist, children’s worker and curator of visual forms of worship.
