“I was have always taught myself to enjoy my mistakes”


Keen to embrace the unpredictability that infuses every facet of our lives, George Morton-Clark undergoes a creative process which is both gruelling and exhilarating, but never fails to engage the sensory receptors. Crucially, he understands the importance of taking a holistic approach to art, so every imaginable component of his work is constantly working in synergy with its neighbour. He approaches his work as if it is a puzzle, with each piece having to come together individually to create the finished article.  For George, balance is one of the defining trademarks of his work as it’s this perfect harmony which confirms his work is finished.


Incorporating his own experiences into his work, George has a myriad range of inspirations; his passion for travel to locations such as India, South America, Middle East and the Far East always fuels his innovative nature and allows him to create work with a personal, yet highly communicable message. And when it comes to the influence of artists that help fan the flames of creativity, George is quick to name check Albert Oelohen, George Condo and Cy Twomby, all of whom deliver simplicity and great form in their work.


Throughout George’s career there have been a number of highlights, but some stand out as true high points which confirm his talents.
