George Pfau
Framing Cannibal (Standing)

This work exemplifies George Pfau’s interest in zombies and liminal embodiment. In different ways, zombies are present here as an icon of coming apart, yet they retain a persistent thereness.

George Pfau's work explores marginal and transitional states of being. Decaying bodies and exposed buildings populate his work. His interest in the in-between also extends to material techniques, as Pfau's pieces are often built in layers and remain semi-transparent. His renderings range between the precisely illustrated and the blurry forms of becoming, but all retain a sense of flux, both of juxtaposition and decomposition.
