Georgie Hopton(1967-), Artist
Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist using a wide range of media. Hopton's celebratory works on paper at first seem joyful and exuberant. However behind the glitter and the use of candy coloured paint is a bitter-sweet element which examines clichés of the decorative and ideas of femininity. First one person show Sweet Exhibition was shown in 1998 at the Cabinet Gallery, Brixton.
