Georg DouglasGeorg Douglas is an artist who was b
orn 1945 in Co. Derry, Northern Ireland.

"I moved seriously into art in 2005. I am partly self-taught and read a lot about art. However, I have also attended long-term formal courses at Iceland's two art universities continuously since 2005, ReykjavÝk Art College and Kˇpavogur Art College. Courses have included painting and life drawing, as well as private lessons from renowned Icelandic artists.

I have been painting almost daily since 2005. My field of interest has been semi-abstract work inspired by the world of nature and Irish dance I feel that art should be very visual, appealing to the emotions or creating an atmosphere. Therefore, I like my paintings to be strong, whether it is color, shape or something else. I want them to invoke an immediate reaction, whether confronting viewers or drawing them into the work, so I aim for the dramatic.

In my semi-abstract flower inspired paintings I include features such as flowers, stems and petals, I also extend the field of view by including elements visible only from a microscope or molecular model, like spirals of plant tissue and proteins or pollen grains, and I think this aspect comes from my scientific training. I also like to ignore scale and cluttered elements without a real foreground or background. This reflects the complexity of nature itself and leaves something to the viewer's imagination.

 "My original scientific training has directly allowed me to mix art and science."
