Three wall woodland mural depicting an explosion of local wildlife from the site’s surrounding area.
A sense of dynamism was an important aspect of this project for Georgie – all of the animals within the mural are moving, running or flying in the direction of the building’s natural light, as if they are chasing the sunshine outside. The plant life and weather elements also grow and move in this direction, instilling the work with a sense of flow and energy.
There is a subtle transition through the seasons from wall to wall, starting with a scene suggesting winter with a fox, holly, brambles and bare branches. The next wall shows red squirrels and the falling leaves of autumn, before blooming into a summery scene by the water with luscious leaves, a kingfisher and heron on the final adjacent wall. Although the seasons change, a tropical, vibrant colour palette is maintained to emulate the warm, joyful feeling Georgie wanted the artwork to express. Through use of bold, arresting, playful shapes and colours, Georgie’s aim was for the overall effect of the project to be uplifting. Georgie hoped to create something that could be a delight for the eyes – a nod to her love of complex pieces with new little details to find each time the work is revisited.
