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.
