Martin George | (b.1980) | Australia, Melbourne
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 ...
