George Williams, born in Abergavenny and educated at the London Metropolitan University, is an artist currently residing and working in North London.
The main focus of George’s ideas originates from studies of landscapes, street scenes and their architectural surroundings. The imagery of landscapes are taken as a starting point into experimentations with the qualities of the materials used; The paint and colour are manipulated and warped during the process, turning the medium into the focal point of the work. Currently, oil paint is the primary medium used to depict these scenes. The material values of the oils; the structural, buttery, timely drying process, are all key to the desired effect George aims to create with his painting, that of a surface being dominated in a saturated, workman-like body of heavily cemented paint.
London, as a place in constant flux between nature and technological advancement, provide a vast inspiration behind most of George’s recent ideas, along with imagery taken from other urban sprawls, where human habitation and the natural become entwined with the mechanisms that surround us, giving form and shape on which George builds his work.
