GeoJennings-FarmhouseWithOilHeatGeorge Jennings explores the natural environment around him, and seeks out those instances “where nature is recovering from man’s interruptions”. George has participated in many monthly juried shows at the Torpedo Factory and is a regular at Nimrod Hall, an artists’ retreat. His process is an expressive creative exploration where chance and innovation are an inherent part of the work. “Art, in one form or many, has always been in the back of my mind, often finding its way forward to be practiced. It could be music, writing, or some form of the fine arts… In the visual arts, you must back away from your efforts to see if the details effectively support your overall composition. The same is true in life. So I am always backing up and looking at the recently applied strokes, making adjustments, and remembering to understand that the successful product is actually the continuing process.” George holds Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Architecture from Clemson University with a Minor in Urban and Regional Planning. He is a registered architect in four states and an experienced urban planner. He is also a teacher, commercial waterman, and now… a painter.
