Hildrew's narrative paintings depict psychological situations that deconstruct observation, personal experience and dream.
The visionary and metaphysical works, whether figurative or abstract, access the transcendental.
The figure paintings are either geometric forms in space, icon-like in their ideated glance and gesture, or they are depleted volumes, weightless and disembodied, placed against minimalist stripes or planes of flat color.
The conceptual abstractions engage practices of: process painting, text painting, stencil painting, smearing, Rorschach blots, and grids of meandering lines.
George Hildrew has studios in Brooklyn, New York and Haddon Heights, New Jersey.
