ARTIST INFO

About 

George Rouy (b. 1994, Sittingbourne, Kent, UK) lives and works in Faversham, Kent. Rouy’s approach to the body - and his pursuit of painting - is one of contradiction, harmony and perpetual transformation, criss-crossing gender, form and disposition. His work is a fever dream of amorphous, fluid embodiment: rhapsodic portraits of 21st century desire, of physical dissonance, mystery and secrecy, ecstasy and turmoil, proximity and distance. Rouy’s work is liberated from established ways of being. In its place is an examination of the psychic effects of what encounters mean and feel like, drawing equally on the here-and-now, digital culture and the industrial advances of our age, as they do from primordial expression and the classical demands of colour and form.
