George Casprowitz

I was born and raised in Hollywood California in the 1940's. My first major career was in the movie industry in the production side of film making. A film is produced in a rectangular format and like most paintings, tells a story using visual stimuli and dependent upon the viewer to supply their experience to complete its story. My work depends on the viewer to relate its lines, circles, and open spaces to ideas beyond the physical objects.

Upon graduating from the University of Oregon, I entered into the sphere of architecture, working in both New York and Philadelphia. My background in architecture has added to all that I do; the understanding of line, color, and form were all from my architectural training; there is a consistency in dealing with composition and motion. However, it was the lack of color that got me out of architecture but because architecture dealt mostly with textures, I felt I could easily transfer that into my paintings and draw on my strength as a colorist. My paintings use lines and solid forms as a preliminary format but the remaining negative space is of equal importance, as is color and texture. Color is the constant through all the various forms of my paintings, prints, and sculptures.

I don’t have a great philosophy to my work; I react emotionally, drawing on life experience. Nature is the underpinning of my inspiration with its ever-changing colors and textures.  Color and light change with
the seasons, seeing new rock formations, new horizons all influence what I do.  However, it is color that keeps me going. Inspiration can be serendipitous. I began painting by using oils but I like the fact that acrylics dry rapidly, allowing me to create layered, multidimensional work. I don’t have a set format; if something hits my fancy, I can go left, right, or wherever my composition leads me; my only constant is color.
