"... all I can do is to capture something of this fleeting world."
George Haynes presents a sumptuous exhibition of new works at the Holmes à Court galleries in West Perth and Margaret River in March and May 2021.

Known for rich colourist landscape paintings, gouaches and drawings, George has been pre-occupied at regular intervals throughout his career with anamorphic painting and their translation into large scale sculpture.
André Lipscombe writes in the catalogue,
'The origins of Haynes' artistic trajectory rests in his uptake of British painterly figurative influences... however a sustained influence upon the development of Haynes' working method has been fostered through a lifetime of mutual respect and engagement with a select group of Perth painters.'
Now in his 80s, Haynes continues to expand his technical and conceptual repertoire to communicate ideas and questions about visual experience and perception.' His new work... 'is light-hearted and challenging, inventive, straightforward and multifaceted. A paradox with joie de vivre.'
