George Boorujy's Ridiculously Detailed Nature Paintings

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on March 16, 2012 in Art
  • In his intricatel ink-on-canvas works, Brooklyn artist George Boorujy uses a trained naturalist’s eye to depict iconic North American animals and landscapes, presenting a vision of life on the continent that is at once foreign and familiar.

    Focusing on the natural world is something that comes, er, natural to him. "I always drew animals, like most kids," he says, "but I guess I just never grew out of it. When you get older, there’s this idea that if you’re making art it also has to be more 'adult' or 'heady' or something. But there is something primal about drawing, something pre-language. I think there is an impulse to depict what’s around us."

    George’s latest solo show, Blood Memory, opened at P.P.O.W in New York on March 15.
