'The Physicality of Paint'
An exhibition of paintings
27th August – 25th September 2022
Oil paint dries slowly allowing the artist to move the paint around the canvas or board. with fingers,
brush or palette knife. It can be scraped off to reveal layers of previously created images which
may or may not be significant in the memories triggered.
The surface can be scratched through as with an etching or drawing allowing different modes of
expression and the paint can be thinned to the consistency of watercolour allowing it to flow or
dribble in different directions.
Geoff’s work contains all of these elements in his sheer joy and exuberance in his handling of the
material and must be seen at close quarters for the viewer to experience the qualities and beauty
of the surfaces.
