Given Time is a collaborative exhibition and installation between Australian artists Tom Gerrard and Georgia Hill, exploring the layered notions of change that exist in each artists' own distinct practice. In this new series of works created specifically for the Metro gallery space, Gerrard and Hill combine iconic imagery from their own rich visual language to form structures, references to nature, and abstract compositions, to consider how change can be approached in both physical practice and personal perception.

Each artist’s own nuanced take of change and time, from Gerrard's uniquely Australian suburban neighbourhoods and natural scenes, toHill's bold, abstract view of architecture and language, come together to depict moments of reflection and pause in literal and abstract landscapes, where growth is ultimately developed with a continues application of self, materials and time.

Presented on birch ply board, these works utilise hardwearing materials from the artists' accomplished experiences of creating large scale murals, graffiti and sketch-book based works. Given Time presents Gerrard and Hill's unique aesthetics as one, allowing a sense of opportunity and anticipation to exist within the micro and macro details of structures, nature and time that shapes our every day.

 

Tom Gerrard

Tom Gerrard’s art career started in the mid-90s where his art could be found on the streets of Melbourne. These days, he’s globally known for painting simplified characters, architecture and nature using a minimal colour palette. The characters and elements that make up his paintings have been inspired by people he’s seen and places he’s been.

Tom’s gallery work is an evolution of style and technique that was learned painting on the streets. He has fused this style with acrylic paints, water colours and any other materials that he can find in his studio.

After eight years of travelling around the world, Tom returned to Melbourne in 2016. Since then he has placed his artistic focus exclusively on Australian life, suburban culture and his natural surroundings.He has utilised his thirteen years working as a graphic designer, and as a result his art has a graphical look as he works with a minimal colour palette and strips back his subjects to simple shape and line work.

Tom has settled back into Melbourne life where he paints murals at large art festivals across the country, exhibits in prestigious galleries such as Bromley & Co and Benalla Art Gallery and collaborates with some of the country’s biggest names in contemporary art.

 

Georgia Hill

Georgia Hill is an Australian artist, specialising in contemporary, often site-specific based artworks that combine bold,monochromatic textures and lettering within experimental compositions.

Using a range of mediums, her instantly recognisable aesthetic can be read in terms of connections, relationships, time, place and community. Over the past four years, Hill’s works have developed from smaller exhibition works to large-scale installations that explore how structures and our natural environments are vital in allowing experiences to exist and develop from one physical context to another. Constantly on the road, Hill's current gallery practice reflects her personal experience of moving fast then slow, continuously juxtaposing landscape, and bold impressions of the physical and mental spaces our experiences come to exist in.

Hill's works have spanned small inner-city walls to 400ft abandoned buildings including India, New Zealand, Iceland, The United States,Canada, Japan, Indonesia, and across Australia’s states.
