Mexican Stepchild, oil on glass, 8″ x 11″, 2013
George Magalios Studios announces the completion of The Gulf of Mexico Tryptich, a series of three paintings exploring the color green. The paintings, abstract oils on broken glass, were completed on what was once a table covering.
George Magalios explains: “The glass covering my antique dining table broke due to excessive heat after I placed a hot pan on it. The break was along a beautiful curved line that create a fantastic edge to two pieces. I later broke a small section off one of the larger pieces and ended up with three interesting pieces of glass that I could not bring myself to recycle.”
George Magalios is now on saatchionline.com, the official website registry of artists published by the Saatchi Gallery. The Saatchi Gallery’s registry is a global enterprise that creates web portfolios for artists from all walks of life. You can see the George Magalios portfolio here.
