Since the early 1970s, Georgia Marsh’s landscape paintings have been informed by minimalist abstraction. By cropping charcoal drawings of tree limbs and flowers into rigid shapes, the artist highlights the tension between organic and geometric, as well as, representation and abstraction. Shes calls this formal structuring of nature, “A futile attempt at organizing chaos.”
Marsh has had a solo exhibition at the Aldrich Museum of Art in Ridgefield. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, The National Museum of American Art in Washington DC, Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, and Provincetown Art Museum. She has received many awards, including fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, an NEA international fellowship, and a Pollock/Krasner Foundation Fellowship.
