George Abramidze:
Happy Houses

October 30 - December 17, 2021

George Abramidze was born in 1966 in Georgia. He graduated from art school in 1983. In 1988-1991 he studied in Kharkiv State Institute of Arts in Ukraine, and in 1993 he graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts. Since 1989 had participated in multiple international and group exhibitions in Georgia and abroad.

In his art, he focuses on easel painting, monumental paintings, graphic sculptures, large installations and objects.

George is a member of the Artists Union of Georgia, BBK Bundesverband Bildender Kรผnstlerinnen und Kรผnstler (Federal Association of Artists, Germany), and the International Federation of Artists UNESCO. His works are in public and private collections in Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Lithuania, Turkey, Russia, Slovakia, Greece, Spain, France, China, and the USA.

In his series of paintings, "Happy Houses", George attempts to recreate houses of Tbilisi, his native town. Tbilisi known for its hospitality, wine and hanging out with friends until dawn.

These houses resemble swallow nests built on the side of a cliff nested one on top of the other.ย  These dwellings are always open to guests and visitors, theyโ€™re welcoming and alive.ย  These houses will remind you that theyโ€™re also your houses and an ever-lasting live history is preserved in them from the ancient times until today. ย  And that new history must be written with the same romanticism, tenderness, happiness, humor, joy and love by you.ย  ย

But yet, to understand George Abramidze's work, it is important to see the context, the environment where he lives and creates, his lovely Republic of Georgia.
