Unsung is a continued progression from his February 2006 solo show in New York City, Odds and Ends, at Orchard Street Gallery, which featured a large collection of pen-and-ink drawings. St. George’s work for Unsung will consist of new drawings on vintage sheet music. The pieces are fashioned on found paper, creating a romantic and interesting duality. His contemporary pieces project an eerie, yet calm feeling and parallels the artist’s feelings on relationships, life and death.
Most of St. George’s work is autobiographical, demonstrating his fearless admission of his own failures and heartaches. When asked to comment, St. George said about the new work, “I wanted something that was nostalgic and would make people reflect on life and their own weaknesses. I admit that my work is not all sunshine and rainbows, but I think even the darkest [piece] has a silver lining; Out of all suffering comes a lesson learned.”
