Painting takes Georges back to countries he can no longer explore and helps him make the most of the places he loves that are closer to home. He says: "From my childhood in Africa, where I lived until I was 17, I remember the local artists, sculptors and painters who used to sell their art in the village markets. Their drawings on black paper represented traditional dancers and other local characters. These colours have never left me." Georges' paintings evoke landscapes and scenes from the Carribean, Madagascar, La Réunion, Les Comores, Nepal, Tibet and Canada.
Travelling remains a passion - indeed, a necessity - if Georges is to renew stocks of images for inspiration. Georges has exhibited extensively in the Languedoc region where he lives and also in London.
We hope you enjoy the energy and colours of these paintings.
