Minimalism, both as a philosophy of art and life, has deeply influenced George Digalakis’s work. He draws inspiration from various objects: the sea, the sky and from his emotional response to them. It is in the simple feelings that they evoke – vastness, quietness, tranquillity, symmetry, and balance—in that he finds beauty.
Long exposures are his signature because they enable him to convey the dimension of time in a two-dimensional medium and to create a dreamy atmosphere.
His work departs from representation, conceptualism, and the endless search for meaning, and focuses on the wonder of beauty and simplicity.
