Statement & CV

Biography

George Goodridge was born in Youngstown Ohio and spent his early years in Miami, Florida. Throughout the years he painted and sculpted in varied mediums both figurative and non-figurative.He has studied at the School of Visual Arts, New York and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and  was awarded the position of Senior Technical Adviser to the Student Body at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has taught Visual Techniques at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Since that time he has relocated many times between NYC, Los Angeles and Miami. Best known for his three dimensional paintings, his work has been shown in numerous galleries, museums and corporate collections including The United Airlines Corporate Collection, on display at Miami International Airport. 

Objects Liaise, Statement

TThe Series Divers Objects Liaise Series initially inspired by a lecture on Asian word games I attended by John Cage in 1981 in New York. One of said games was played where opposing players must come up with a opposing word with no relevance to the prior word offered. As an example if one said red truck and offered the opposing solution as blue plane it would not be correct, seeing as both the truck and plane are both objects of transportation and both examples featured a color value.

He also spoke of his poetry dealing with Mesostics. A Mesostic is a poem or other typography such that a vertical phrase intersects lines of horizontal text. It is similar to an acrostic, a type of word puzzle, but with the vertical phrase intersecting the middle of the line, as opposed to beginning each new line (*Wikipedia).

These works are a combination of thoughts provoked by the assimilation of these two practices with the idealism of “Chance Operations” employed as well, a method implementing the chaos as it is in nature to create. The forms were produced through an almost thoughtless process with no consideration for the other cooperative object. The select objects placement in the installation views are variable as the installation has no specific dimensions intended. Fusing of the installation is still implied through the graphic elements of line only. The particular graphics and their relationship to the three-dimensional aspect of the works have been chosen to explore these differences and not only to isolate the solutions into a concise body.


While avoiding typographical solutions employed in Mesostics and applying them to a simplified variable dimension, three-dimensional visual form in my chosen medium, varied results are possible. Unlike the text Cage’s text solutions, the boundaries are crossed with the willingness to accept the results of chance operations. One must think of all objects as diverse and initially unresponsive to one another, while trying to not conform to other present forms/graphics through a somewhat thoughtless process during creation.

Vertebrate Companions Statement

The intent of these works has always been to explore concepts pertaining to the concrete world through the creation of new forms. Being somewhat ambiguous by intention, these three dimensional works are meant to question not only object to object diversity in a visual sense but, also that which exists in sociological and philosophical terms. The relationship between significant parings, attraction and discordance are approached while striving for an inventive translation. Obviously present is the notion that suggests, that when diversity is applied as a union, a richer, broader and at times unforeseen outcome may be occur more often than that of singularity.
 These works are more than merely studies in form, color and composition - or even the questioning of ideas pertaining to nature, emotions, architecture and behavior. They should be thought to be both figurative and abstract simultaneously, while blurring the lines between sculpture, painting, architecture and installation. Although these works have been installed in a specific way, they may be presented in an infinite number of configurations without compromising their integrity or intended correctness. If correctness actually does exist.
   These works are self fabricated from stretched canvas over wood armatures and painted. I refer to the painted areas as blemishes, which exist in all things in nature and industry, making them unique to themselves as most physical entities are. Both architecturally and naturally inspired they invoke the underlying structures of both buildings and bodies.
    Like all structures, the work’s intention possess a solid foundation from which to expand and grow. Both visceral and coolly inert, they are companions in their independent, yet ultimately cohesive nature.

Quoted Series, Statement

Similar in tactics and process from my other works, the Quoted Series is cosiderably more viewer accessable. Based on quotes, whether by a known celebraty of sorts or anonymous, the works are based on more of an emotional in context platform searching for a solution which re-illustrates the quotation in a pure visual, non subjective form.
