Rouy is a virtuoso of the in-betweens: an undefined space where the intimate encounters the detached, the serene grazes the violent, and the platonic traces the erotic.

George Rouy (b. 1994) resides and works in London. He recieved his BFA from Camberwell College of Arts in 2015. Rouy has had solo exhibitions in New York, London, Copenhagen, and Berlin. 


Rouy's paintings engage the body so that amorphous shapes reveal abstract human forms. Throughout his work, ambiguity supports his investigations of historic portraiture in conversation with contemporary sociocultural attributes. The result is amorphous shapes the slowly reveal abstract human forms.
