About the Artist
George Wilson will be displaying two humanist sculptures composed of fragments of wood born long ago in myriad habitats around this beautiful, yet moodful sphere, and not metamorphosed in a new aesthetic, which could be considered somewhat 'Pre-Raphaelite', in style.
George Wilson qualified as a journeyman in 1968, maturing as a master craftsman in 2003, having thus completed the required 40 years in physical practice with the tools.
Since his apprenticeship, he has only ever been his own preceptor, and therefor his aesthetics are singular and self-imagined.
The tools he uses are from a generation past, and also the recycled material. He writes about what he makes, and enjoys a new philosophy of work.
