George Shaw

I have been trying to get to see work by an artist named George Shaw. It seems I missed him again as he had an exhibition in London in the spring this year. He is an artist who paints scenes from his childhood on a housing estate in Coventry. I’ve never seen the paintings but, apparently he uses Humbrol paint which is more commonly used to paint plastic model kits.

I find his work sort of haunting and reminiscent of my youth. The images are devoid of humanity or very much evidence that humanity has been present except for the buildings themselves.

The pictures below are from the series Scenes from the Passion.
