George Young, Two Forms and a Divided Circle, 2013
This unique group exhibition at PEER in Hoxton brings together the work of three artists with distinct approaches to material and process. Caroline Achaintre, Sarah Bowker-Jones and George Young have each produced new work for the show, which has revealed ‘a shared inquisitiveness about image and object making through the languages of sculpture and painting’. Exhibiting artist George Young is a previous winner of the Zoo Art on Paper Award sponsored by John Jones, a prize which aimed to reward an artist whose work with paper addresses contemporary themes and concerns. George describes his use of materials as a series of ‘wrong-footings’ or ‘impersonations’. His sculptural work at PEER references the stolen Barbara Hepworth sculpture Two Forms (Divided Circle) (1960) whilst his paintings pay homage to a variety of cultural references such as British Modernism and Paparazzi photographs. The collection will be on display until 14th September.
