"At an early age, my path was chosen to be an Artist. Visually and intellectually driven, my imagination took me through intervals of development. Realism was pursued on canvas. For my writings and drawings, Surrealism was chosen. I compete with myself though inspiration."
Professional Canadian Artist for over 50 years creating works in oils, drawings, sculpture and photography, George P. Forgie has been represented in galleries across Canada. Forgie graduated from Central Tech SSGD, Ryerson Teachers College with a Teaching Certification and Fine Arts – York University.
"I am constantly reinventing myself – so many languages, disciplines to explore, and plug into, in order to report what I see, feel, absorb; so many stages of my growth – periods of transition, each one had to be; each happened overnight, so to speak.
I never wished to remain with a comfortable style (language) to rest my head upon. Throughout my creative years, l have tasted a variety of subject matters yet remained primarily with the landscape and the ever-changing elements of the human figure. At present, working on a series of large pen and ink drawings under the title of 'My Absurd World'."
