George Politis

"Time plays a very basic role in my paintings; particularly the way it leaves 
its mark on varied objects and on nature itself fascinates me. I see in the old, rusty and ravaged both truth and excitement. I can find inspiration in ordinary and commonly overlooked items, responding to them with dramatically different feelings each time, whether emphasizing the serenity, the loneliness, the atmosphere, the melancholy."   -  G. Politis

Method of Working

I mainly work in watercolours and acrylics, but also use collage or pen and ink occasionally. I prefer painting on heavy watercolour paper (usually rough or cold pressed). My paintings evolve through multiple layers in order to create texture and depth. I usually make sketches, sometimes miniature versions and then proceed to the actual paintings.
