Georgia Driels I love explosions

Work by Georgia Driels

Drawing inspiration from Australian artists such as Bernard Ollis and the Strutt sisters, my artwork is an attempt to explore the power of simplicity and the naive symbolism as a means of bridging the communication divide that separates us. My artwork is an extension of drawings done by a brave, young boy, Daniel Harris, a close family friend who is hearing-impaired and living with cerebral palsy. Daniel’s artwork, while naïve in style, expresses a purity of thought and reflects an understanding of the common consciousness.
