Statement

The purpose of my work is to confront the abject female body. I alternate between early 20th century crime scene photos and Victorian erotica. I present the naked body with morbid undertones, in an ambiguous, dark setting that removes the figure from her original context and places her in the uncanny state that lies between the familiar and unfamiliar. A timeless void, an eerie sense of serenity and placidity that approaches the aesthetic of beauty as an attachment to the sensual body. These are the hollowed out bodies that once distended the soul. As I move further in my work, transitioning from the stillness and ambiguity from the death of the feminine body to delving into deeper phenomenological means of the feminine identity itself. I strive to open up a dialog between myself and onlookers about the state of the feminine identity and whether or not it exists without being objects of sexual desire. A dialog spoken without words, one emulated visually with the use of various glazing and layering techniques, bridging the gap between classic and contemporary figurative painting.

 

Georgia Hinaris is a Brooklyn based painter. She graduated with a BFA from Pratt Institute. She is a self-taught oil based painter originally from Chicago, IL who began painting with oil at the age of 9. She focuses primarily on female figures, referencing a mixture of early 20th century crime scene photos and Victorian era erotica in order to bring life to the otherwise lifeless and to subvert the sexual gaze. Her favorite activity is sleeping, she loves drag queens, horror movies and she named her cat after a character on Game of Thrones.
