Exploring a particular theme by painting a series of slightly varying compositions is something I don’t do; rather I make batches of paintings in which accumulated feelings and visual stimuli materialise in unique compositions that can be appreciated individually or as part of a group”.
George is currently based in Bristol UK, where he has his studio at Hamilton House. He graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2008, subsequently winning the Midas Award that gave him a year’s free occupancy of a large studio at Krowji, Cornwall. The year commenced with the Midas Award shortlist exhibition at Newlyn Gallery and culminated with a solo show at Millennium Gallery St Ives as part of the 2009 Midas Award. During that year George gained the recognition of Badcocks Gallery, where his paintings in group exhibition One Year On were a sell-out. Shortly to follow were several further exhibitions in Cornwall including George’s first solo show at Badcocks in 2010, BIG SKY, and The Picture Room at Newlyn Gallery, 2011. He has had work included in the Battersea AAF most years since graduating and been involved in several group projects across the country. Since living in Bristol, George’s artistic career has branched out of Cornwall, gaining exposure in and around Bristol as well as other areas nationally and internationally. In 2012 George had 9 paintings included in Bath Contemporary Summer Exhibition, he also had his work shown in Byard Art, Cambridge and most recently had 12 paintings included at Stockholm AAF 2013. Aside from painting, George works with adults with learning disabilities and is a keen gardener, walker and cook.
