David George, whose bright canvases explore expressions of freedom, nature, and the social world, will be on view at at the University of Bridgeport.
With 30 works, the show reveals the full range of Mr. George’s use of light, color and texture “to explore the inner- and external realities of his subjects, from the isolation of modern-day man to human longing of a woman yearning for dignity,” the university’s Leslie Geary explains.
“Painting,” says George, “feels like I am conducting an orchestra with tones of color instead of instruments.”
George graduated from the Newark School of Fine Arts and then Ramapo College with a Master of Art degree. He is a former student of Samuel Brecher, who was a student Charles Hawthorne, an American painter who exhibited with Pablo Picasso.
George was sponsored by for many years by the Gem and Hadley Art Galleries in New Jersey and his works have been exhibited by the American Watercolor Society, the National Academy of Design, and the Audubon Artists of America. His artwork is on permanent display in the Ramapo College Library.
The show opens with a reception Oct. 28 at The Gallery at the University of Bridgeport Arnold Bernhard Center. It closes Nov. 19.
