13 The Necromantic

George was born in the midlands in 1966. Thirty years later he began making paintings of this place and has been, despite several attempts, unable to cease this daily slog. In 2011 he failed to win the Turner prize much to the disappointment of his mother.

Recent exhibitions include I Woz Ere at The Herbert, Coventry, UK (2011), The Sly and Unseen Day,  BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead  and The South London Gallery, London (2011), Looking for Baz, Shaz, Gaz and Daz, Void, Derry (UK) 2010. He has a forthcoming exhibition at The Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin.
