GEORGE GITTOES (article first published : 2001-02-3)

George Gittoes is one of Australia’s most prolific and powerful artists. A painter, filmmaker, printer, photographer and performer, he has produced work in a wide range of styles and context but always remains close to his focus of conflict and cultural shift.

“I believe I am the only artist in the world with such comprehensive direct experience of the players and mechanisms at the flash points of the current post-post colonial, and post cold war/one world era,” he says. “My body of work explores these close up observations and experiences.

The Durban Art Gallery will host an exhibition of George Gittoes’ work from February 28 to April 8. The artist will be in Durban sometime during the exhibition and will be holding lectures. Watch the press for details closer to the opening date.
