GEORGES DE GROOT (1974), DRAWING, PAINTING AND SCULPTING THREAD THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE.
He awakens canvas and media with quirky fantasy creatures reflecting his captivating imagination. Every object tells its own story in which shape and color surprise. His inspiration includes whimsy of animal fables and fairy tales with medieval and prehistoric traces and textures. A blank canvas sets the stage for Georges de Groot to imagine and fascinate through structure, texture and color. The paintings, full of color and expression, deviously reveal joy and enthusiasm. The ceramics pictured are typically constructed upon several layers including surprising elements contained within. The chimerical ceramic creatures by Georges de Groot are a joy to behold; partly why they are very popular with the public.
