Winner of the £1000 award for best work in show at the Artisan Showcase 2002, George Kowzan's work has gone from strength to strength. From neon and granite in a wonderful exhibition four years ago in the Crypt at Samares Manor, to minimalist granite and water in Taipei, George's work has consistently shown innovation, development and highly creative ideas.
The sources of inspiration for this new body of work are The Jersey Sogetsu School of Ikebana, the abstract expressionism of Jackson Pollock and the optical art of Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely and Yvaral.
The Resonance exhibition consists mainly of wall-hung low relief panels using materials such as mirror, stainless steel, stone, glass and paint. Clear casting resin acts as a lens to distort and refract the images.
An installatioin of Ikebana arrangements and free-standing sculptures features in the entrance to the gallery.
