George Hainsworth – British School – Oil on Board – Signed and dated 1995 Rose, Gallery Label Paryton Garden London SW10.
George has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally since the 1960s, and his work is in numerous private, corporate and public collections in Britain, Europe and the United States. His formal training took place at the Leeds College of Art (1955 – 60), followed by study at the Slade School of Fine Art (1960 – 62). The award of the Gulbenkian Scholarship in Sculpture enabled George to study and develop his work at the British School in Rome (1962 – 63), and his exposure to the radical pan-European vision continues to resonate through his work. Gallery Forty-Nine is delighted to have the opportunity to show a selection of paintings by this highly acclaimed and respected Yorkshire artist.
George says: "Since I was a student, the term 'abstract' or 'abstraction' has been a term which has had a breadth of interpretation, from the specific to the vague. My take on the term is that of a distillation of the essential in the outer and inner worlds of artistic practice."
Alongside the lifelong expression of his ideas through painting, sculpture and drawing, George has also enjoyed a career lecturing in fine art, culminating in his appointment as Professor of Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University in 1996.
