Georgina Maxim

b.1980

Georgina Maxim's work functions in part as meditation for the artist. As self-healing and self-recognition, hours spent alone but not lonely and working in the monotony of the same thread, finding only variation in the next colour. The colour and stitch can and may be translated into and as cicatrices of every little scar, laughter and stitch. It serves as memory of the owner of the dress and remaking the past into new.

Maxim was born in Harare where she lives and works as both artist and co-founder of Village Unhu collective and open studio. She studied fine art at Chinhoyi University and soon after her studies taught art and worked as gallery manager at Gallery Delta (2004-2013) before opening Village Unhu. Maxim has exhibited at galleries and international art fairs including Gallery Delta (from 2009 to date), Mojo Gallery (2016), and National Gallery of Zimbabwe (2014) where she was awarded first prize in the exhibition ‘Woman at the Top’. Fairs include 1:54 London, Cape Town Art Fair and Joburg Artfair. She regularly participates in curatorial workshops internationally. Maxim's work has been acquired by many numerous public and private collections internationally.
