About Geoffrey


A broken bent tree branch, bleached from sun and rain, makes me think of weathered bones: fingers, legs, backbone, and hip bone. Old stained strips of cloth act like bandages and clothing, hiding and holding it all together. Sculpted wax covers the frame and joints of wood. Found and lost objects assembled into curious and evocative shapes is what excites me.

When I am making objects, I think of model airplanes made of balsa wood, then covered in thin transparent paper. Or I see decoys and shapes made to attract wild animals. I visited a museum in Alaska that had drawers filled with toys that had been put together, used and collected from previous cultures. I also think of a forest of tall, dark trees covered in moss and moisture, a silent, meditative place.

Fantastic, its beautiful and most defnitely intrigueing. Love how discarded items are reused to make something so beautiful.

Beautiful finally some meaningful art on this site.

The work is eloquent...it seems G.Gorman is channeling some life force energy, with powerful results. The work is brilliant, and penetrates into our deepest feelings about animal/spirit/human worlds. I dare any one of us to spend a night with one of his sculptures hovering over us. To do so is to invite communion with the ineffable soul - our deepest roots to life. What flows through this artist is genius.

These sculptures capture the animals' beauty with the very sensitve lines and painful vulnerability of a captured spirit with the barbed wire.

AMAZING
