George Jacobi - Artist's Statement


 I spend as much time outside as I possibly can, engaged with the natural world. As a fly fisherman I occupy a space that includes both predator and prey, and in a genuinely spiritual sense I become the creatures I am interacting with. My awareness and my compassion expand by this intimate activity.

As an artist, I inhabit my work in the same way, becoming the objects and connections as they are created. Making visual art continually fine-tunes my own awareness and vitality. Despite making use of recognizable images, I am energized by negative space and abstraction. The interaction of elements in these works of art is designed to enable the viewer to question exactly what is seen, and thereby kick-start the questioning of his or her own perception.
