George Lianos was fascinated with art from a young age, Henry Moore being his greatest
inspiration. He completed a Diploma in Graphic Design in 1974, but soon his love of sculpture predominated. In 1978 George was commissioned for a series of sculptures in Greece. For the last 17 years he has been working in his studio based in Malmsbury. In 2002, he was commissioned to make a 3 metre bronze sculpture for a private residence in Melbourne. He has been involved in many group and solo exhibitions, the latest solo exhibition being at the Latrobe Art Institute. His sculptures have been showing in various galleries in Victoria and around Australia.
‘Geometric Being 4’ is created using the interactions and relationships of geometric shapes,
line and movement. Made of corten steel, the shapes appear massive and weighty, full of
embodied energy. They seem to be delicately poised and balanced on each other while at the same time they create a feeling of uneasy tension. The result is what appears to be a very powerful ‘Being’ which seems to be looking to the skies and connecting with powers above, in its own way looking quite graceful.
