Classical Dynamism

Stainless steel | paint | Carrara marble | Rotating column |2017 | 400cm

My current enquiry focuses on condensing human dynamism into a sculptural form, framing it through a post human lens. Classical Dynamism consists of a stainless steel form placed atop a marble monolith, I wish to investigate how we can learn about ourselves through the artifacts we leave behind.

“George pairs his finely finished metal pieces with an old leather basketball, a bowl of pretzels or an elegant marble coffee table with a crude iron weight. Sturdy, but energetic, Georges works are interactive, restless and even kinetic.”

“In this troubled world of earthquakes, floods, wars and global warming, it is a sheer delight to find a dedicated sculptor with such an ironic sense of humour and a highly developed sense of the ridiculous.
While Martin George can undoubtedly make a totally convincing piece of modernist sculpture, viewable from all directions and immaculately constructed, he also likes in catching the spectator unawares. Things are frequently not quite as they first seem.”
