Georgia Goodnow

“The HBA Museum afforded me the opportunity to understand the body through a different lens. While the specimens are distinct from life, they undeniably have a presence that resonates deeply with your own existence”

Georgia Goodnow moved to Melbourne from Canberra in 2014 to study a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. Goodnow works predominantly in aerosol and large-scale murals, however her practise also encompasses illustration, film, photography and installation. Her work in each medium is linked by an underlying interest in the human body, personality and everyday activity – particularly as sites for the irrational. She has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas.
