Clifford George – Celebration

The studio paintings of renowned Newfoundland artist Clifford George come from onsite sketchbook drawings that map the layout of the land and the seascape of the places he visits.

“The rockfaces form towers, seabirds and the ebb and flow of the tide are my symphony,” George says. “The spirit of people that went before me speaks to me when I paint.”

The exhibition “Clifford George – A Celebration of Life and Place” is just finishing at Christina Parker gallery in St. John’s. “The paintings are engaging compositions imbued with brilliant colour, light, and as the artist states, the spiritual energy of the place,” notes for the exhibition say.

There is something primal about George’s works, a mystical element that speaks to my own Gaelic heritage.

All works are described in more detail on the Christina Parker website, here.
