Artist Statement

George Bills' work relies on his curiosity and sense of adventure into the world around him, often exploring the spaces we inhabit. Predominantly an installation artist, drawing is a large part of the way in which he works. His approach is impulsive giving him freedom within all projects. The starting point might be anything, material choices through to the context of the work's placement. Drawing is normally where his ideas are first, sometimes becoming the finished piece.
