Andreas M. Georgiou’s work explores bodily gestures and body energy in relation to material.
Andreas M. Georgiou (b.1985) studied Painting at the School of Fine Arts, Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki in Greece before going on to complete an MA in Fine Art at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London, UK.
His inspirations and influences derive from the disciplines of painting and sculpture, as well as from performing art, pursuing mostly the idea of recording actions. His work presents an attempt to capture the energy of the human body and he is highly attracted by the ways this energy is transmitted through an action, out of the body, into the space, and is documented in visual forms. Balancing between painting, drawing, sculpture, and documentation he explores material and immaterial records of bodily gestures in relation to time, form and mass. His artefacts are the traces of his own gestures and the results of passing through several mediums.
