Emerging Representation

George Woodman began his career as an abstract painter, exploring color and structure in his work, then moved to photography in the early 1980s, a medium with which he has been experimenting ever since. A central member of the art community in Colorado, Woodman was part of the Criss-Cross Art Communications group (formed in the early 1970s) and among the founding members of the SPARK Gallery (founded in 1978). Woodman’s is a family of artists, whose most famous member is his daughter, the late photographer Francesca Woodman. His black-and-white photographs of nude young women, often embellished with paint, remind viewers of Francesca’s work while reflecting his own vision. As he explains: “My familiarity with her work and its importance has made me want to produce something that can’t be confused with hers. I try to have a space which is my own.”
