Robert George

Robert George

Born: 1990

Hometown: Towcester

Based in: Foxley, South Northamptonshire

What connects me to my material? Usually a piece of rope as thick as your index finger. Working at height as an arborist for over a decade, studying, climbing and being in contact with wood in its rawest form – day in, day out and come rain or shine gives me a unique relationship with the work I create.

Provenance is at the heart of every piece, the journey from the camaraderie and brilliant teamwork on-site to insular and meditative in the studio is encapsulated in my work and self-taught methods of working- the following intuition and reflecting upon my own experience of how my material presented itself to me and how this may be perceived in the wider world and the general perception of trees.
