GEORGE DEVLIN

2011


Like many artists I work in a range of media as the concept seems to dictate. At one point this triggered a series of etchings since I sensed a poetic connection between the bite of acid on metal and the sea eroded foreshore I was working on. Another such occasion gave rise to a series of ceramic sculptures, as seemed appropriate. Equally, I believe that if oils are the full symphony then watercolour is the string quartet and is therefore charged up with that delightful frisson of having to work expressively and precisely with the bare bones; a high wire act with no safety net which is simultaneously a challenge and a refining process. I hope you will enjoy these fruits of the fluctuating intercourse of subject, matiere and me; sometimes luscious, sometimes unexpected, but always bearing the seeds of the next piece of surprising continuum.

George Devlin.
