ArtsACT has the delightful news that the amazing George Rose is putting on her first exhibition at Nishi:
Anger Management and The Importance of Personal Hygiene is George Rose’s first solo exhibition. The works presented deal with idea’s surrounding expression vs interpretation and the notion of the creation of art aiding in the mental digestion of concepts, which are difficult to process.
This body of work has been created as a means of comprehending and expressing events in the artists life. It is the result of cathartic exploration and is heavily process driven. The outcome may be evident of an expressive process rather than a creative process.
Whilst the works presented are personal in nature, it is the artist’s intention that the art produced is accessible and that the audience is able to connect with her motivations.
George enjoys using juxtaposing cues mixed with commonly understood concepts to create inconsistent visual information. The intention is for the audience to engage in the works with their own intuition.
George aims to create art that engages, moves and finds humour in unlikely places, using a visual vocabulary as opposed to written or oral text.
The mediums in the show vary from oil paintings, interactive light sculptures, video installations, ceramics and hand crafted type works. Each piece has been created using a visual vocabulary appropriate to the intended outcome.
