ARTIST: GEORGE MELLOR

UK-based artist George Mellor presents selected works that cross sculptural and painted portraits. At the centre of Mellor’s output lies the processes and effects of addiction. Mellor’s brave and cathartic exploration, using a variety of media is bold and in-your-face and adopts an aesthetic which can be easily rooted and traced in queer art history. These echoes of queer art past sit really rather neatly in the echoes of his subject’s past.  Mellor gives these selected works the overarching title: INSIDE YOU INSIDE ME.

Mellor says, “A lot of my work has undertones of queer subcultured settings and also I use it as an outlet for my mental health “issues”. My dissertation that I wrote compared art school to mental health institutions.  I did my degree in fine art paint and print at Manchester art school but I’m passionate about making sculpture/installations.” (2017)
