While forging their own bold aesthetics in their personal practices, Sydney based artists Georgia Hill and Elliott Numskull Routledge have been combining their unique artistic styles on a series of large scale murals and installations across Australia over the past 18 months.
As a culmination of these past collaborations, Hill and Routledge will hold two individual site specific installations in the new COMMUNE space in Waterloo. While the facade exhibits their first large scale artwork together, inside each artist will take over their own space with a display of personal works.
I THINK ABOUT THIS ALL THE TIME
A series of large scale murals over the past 18 months has led Hill to clarify and explore not just the idea of personal reflection through lettering based artworks, but also how structures, along with our natural environments, are home to and vital in allowing these experiences to exist.
In this large scale installation, Hill will utilise the sparse warehouse space at COMMUNE to further explore this emerging concept, where experiences and memory continue and develop from one physical context to another.

HAPPINESS AS RELIGION
In his latest body of work, Elliott has been exploring the idea of happiness as an
object or idol. His fascination with religion also plays a big part of this exploration and
ultimately in this exhibition he will play on the idea of life and death, and the struggle
we go through to find peace and happiness within life.
‘Happiness As Religion’ will be a series of site specific installations inside the gigantic and barren COMMUNE warehouse space focusing on those ideas.
