Icelandic artist, Georg Óskar displays his first UK solo show, 'I felt bad but I feel a little bit better now' from 8th February to 23rd March 2019 at the Abject Gallery in Newcastle.
Figurative, often minimalistic and free from rigid structure, is an obvious and direct description of Georg's paintings. From early on, Georg has been loyal to his original style and imagery. His intimate and honest relationship with the canvas indicates no holding back. Essential is the impetuous method of free-flowing colour and lines to grasp an exact moment of influence, as well as the passion of sharing stories and his peace of mind.
He captures interesting events, fantasies or memorable situations from his own life, often under the influence of music and poetry. In Georg’s work, the individual is significant. Not just as a motive or a physical form, but a way to express thoughts and everyday wonderings. Generally, Georg displays his characters in solitude, as a part of an attractive nature, the usual surroundings of everyday life, or even in an otherworldly environment.
This is Óskar's first time exhibiting in the UK.
