“I aim for my work to be uncomfortable for you to look at, yet beautiful at the same time”

George Morton-Clark has created this new collection of eighteen paintings, drawing on his subconscious and reflecting his signature style; a provocative portrayal of faces that create a state of irony, anxiety and the idea of a soul of the verge of mental abyss.

Though this sounds uncomfortable viewing, Morton-Clark emphasises the dark side of beauty through his work, drawing attention to the poetic beauty of his bold brushstrokes, and says that whenever he creates something ‘nice’, he has the urge destroy it with a mark or splash of paint. What therefore may first appear as a mistake is often the painting revealing itself. By letting his subconscious lead the creative process, there is a greater honesty and depth revealed in the final artwork.
