Georges Court - oil on canvas - 22 cm / 14 cm

Since the 80's, until 2020, the path of this painter SURREALIST then POETIC FIGURATION ...then ABSTRACTIVE, transports us into a dreamlike world, paved with premonitory dreams, hidden messages
, dream and unconscious. By the enigmas and humour, it is necessary to seek in the titles and the images, beyond the appearance, the message of the artist.
