Georgoula Maria

Maria Georgoula is an artist and art educator whose art practice and research explore notions around absurdity, apathy and a type of humour that may emerge through the glossary of soft form and banal objects, collected from diverse contexts and worked through sculptural assemblages, sculptural reliefs, collages, drawing and performance. The work ‘The Pig Bagpipe Song’ pays tribute to the use of listening ears and expanding musical instruments in the third panel representing hell in the painting ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ by Hieronymus Bosch 1490-1510.
