Georges Rossi - Biography
"The freedom of art is to allow all emotions without dogma, or religion, raw, ferocious in the wild" - Georges Rossi
Meeting art, or listening to your inner voice
It was only late, at 33, that Georges returned to painting. What was until then only a pleasure (studies at the Beaux Arts and School of Applied Art in Lyon) suddenly became a reason for being, a source of calm and tranquility in his life. The click took place in the Chambéry bookstore: "The art of Robert Bateman". Through this book, an intangible force has reminded him of painting.
Georges' art has progressed and continues to progress. From a realistic animal academic art, he borrows year after year an increasingly personal and assertive style: free, modern, more introspective. His art is meant to be a parable. His paintings invite you to live in harmony with nature. Georges Rossi's animals look and observe, they feel men and send them back to their duty: that of evolving and not falling back into savagery. It is also through painting that Georges wishes to remind men of the essentials of life and invites them to reconnect with their deep Self. He uses animal purity to show men that they too often live in the repression of their emotions, a source of suffering in our modern societies.
His paintings want to be felt like a punch.
Georges Rossi has a deep conviction: art is and must be accessible to all. It is ultimately the public who decide whether or not to join the artist's universe. His wish to be recognized as "the Tarzan of cities".
