GEORGES ROUALT

an appreciation

… … …

This artist consistently escapes the art critics preoccupation with labelling and classifications …

The artist – his painting & his philosophy are generally watered down … not so with Georges Roualt.

His work sits raw … pulsating in a corner of its own … 

He paints his feelings, daubs his emotions, bears his soul … yes, his darkest most personal and inner self … in Roualt’s world he is invisible, transparent, he has nothing to hide …

He has no shame – as an artist, no guilt appropriated or applied … His colours describe his humanity …

His line is exaggerated, rough and uneven … at the same time tempered, deft, perceptive  …

He sees what he sees … as an artist … a true artist … his line describing his personal vision

He defines that line perfectly … like a blind man painting a woman  …

He makes love with his art … his love is awkward, fumbling, over-wrought with passion and a rough energy … He dominates his work while showing enormous sensitivity … he touches the raw spirit and flesh like no other artist  …  

His work transcends time … its not modern, nor traditional … … it speaks to both … it roars, murmurs … it moans … it lives?!

Georges Roualt absorbed his art like a parent gull and in his art he disgorges warm chunks of life in palatable pieces that we ‘subadults’ may comfortably digest … with no fear of choking … 

Give time to Roualt’s work and it will touch you … make you human again.

About edenbray

I've always enjoyed writing and that is all I want to do... .. . I’m not sure why I ever stopped, was it 9/11? .. . Edenbray is born ugly, wet and covered in blood, mucous and bodily functions. The effluence of my short life .. . I am a Writer and Artist - since 1966 - I'm now an avid Blogger ~ I write lots of poems, written essays, articles, reviews, opinion + comment .. . I have published many of my poems in booklets ... please ask for details or just join the shebang by leaving me a marker with a 'like' or a comment for my ego and my encouragement :- thank you so much for listening ~ edenbray

    Love it! Particularly the bit about mother gull… A great analogy that describes the crudity…
