About this Curation

I love looking at other artists work. My house is covered in paintings, drawings and mixed media works from other artists. This allows me to drift into someone else's world and dream my way through what I think might be going on. I also just love the colour combinations, lines and shapes employed by these other brains. I am a very visual person and love colour, movement and depth that really draws the eye in. I am slightly dyslexic, so as a child I used to try and work out what was going on by the visuals, which I was embarrassed to admit, but now I think it was perfect training for the artistic life I lead now.
.
I appreciate a large variety of artworks, from hyper-realist to simplistic abstracts. While the style may vary, composition and colour choices need to be interesting, conflicting, dramatic, contrasting, calming. They say never choose art to go with your curtains or couch, but the jury is out for me on that one. Maybe I’d say choose the curtains and couch to go with the art.

About the Curator

George Hall is a painter, printmaker, illustrator and long-time resident of Kings Cross in the heart of Sydney. One of Bluethumb's most popular artists, George's work holds a zest for colour and texture, inspired by his previous 30-year career as a textile and fashion designer. He has always loved movement and colour, particularly the interplay of colour in nature, and strives to bring these qualities to his work. He also paints under his alter-ego Wendy Orange, who, in his words, "is more colourful and flamboyant towards her art. She has her own profile on Bluethumb, so check her out."
