Trained as a sound artist, Georgina Lewis (she/her) works across media crafting pieces that examine dissonance: what tensions and artifacts result when one or more things come in contact. Lewis’ current work references alchemy, nature, and the anthropocene, using materials such as rain, snow, sand, plastic, mold, and paper to construct images and objects that are both magical and therapeutic: provocative reminders that transformation and change can be both possible and beneficial. Lewis questions the power we invest in technology and the effect this is having on us, believing that it is more important to be whole than perfect.
Georgina was raised in Pennsylvania and Nova Scotia. She received her MFA from Bard College and holds undergraduate degrees from SMFA at Tufts University and Franklin and Marshall College.
