Statement

In painting, as in life, the oldest truths are very often truest.

 

Consequently Georgeson sets out to paint the most fleeting moments of performance, installation art and theatre, precisely because the act of painting gives permanence to fleeting 'hair's breadth' moments of wonder.

This mode takes nothing away from the pleasure of looking at what seems, at first glance, to be fairly conventional painting. But it also places very special emphasis on the relation between the moment and the lifespan of an oil painting. 

This is Georgeson's answer to Google, which he sees as a more significant and more fascinating challenge to painting than photography ever was.
