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 had many poems selected for Anthologies of verse and recently have published many of my poems in 24 themed booklets ... please ask for details and join the shebang by leaving me a marker with a 'like' or comment for my ego and encouragement :- thank you so much for listening ~ edenbray

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