Originally from Miami Florida, George Goodridge has studied at the School of Visual Arts, New York and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was awarded the position of Senior Technical Adviser to the Student Body at the School of the Art Institute and has taught Visual Techniques at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Since that time George has relocated several times between NYC, Los Angeles and Miami. His work has been shown in numerous galleries, museums and corporate collections including the United Airlines Corporate Collection, on display at The Miami International Airport.
He considers his current works three-dimensional paintings or object paintings. These new works are supported by the artist’s prior studies in geometric reconstruction, three-dimensional painting and conceptual installations.
These current three-dimensional multi-canvas studies, The Vertebrate Companion Series, are abstract representations depicting the interaction of uniquely different bodies coexisting in harmony through their varied likeness and unlikeness.
“These pieces are more than merely studies in form, color and composition – or even the questioning of ideas pertaining to nature, architecture and form. Like all structures, the works possess a solid foundation from which they expand and grow. Both visceral and coolly inert, they are indeed companions in their independent, yet ultimately cohesive nature”. *Claressinka Anderson, curator, contemporary art dealer, Los Angeles.
