George’s ﬁrst solo exhibition titled calculations, was held at mmARTHouse. Its core message was to bring to light the power that human beings have in shaping their lives, this is beyond the external factors of life. The title “calculations” speaks to the choices that we make in have an effort to realize what we desire and the power that those choices have. It is by no chance that a man who is so deliberate has won the award, he is the true example of this very message.
In his words “life is a calculated characteristic that distinguishes physical entities that have biological processes, such as signaling and self-sustaining processes, from those that do not”. Your support has has aided in bringing him to this point and we as mmARTHouse are grateful.
