This piece, Desert Series #4, was made as an attempt by the artist to reconnect with herself. During years of displacement from family, Country and culture during lockdown, Georgia worked on pieces that grounded her, using intricate and repetitive patterns as a form of meditation. This piece, using a colour palette of the Central Desert, allowed her to feel a sense of calmness and connection. Over two months, the artist created this large piece as a way of centring herself, each line becoming a moment of grounding.
