Film icon George Kuchar painted this incredible watercolor, Albino Amazon, in 1977. Ada gallery participated in this years Volta NY featuring George's paintings and drawings as well as photography and comic works. Happily, We sold this piece, as well as "The Jersey Devil" which was an equally spectacular painting from 1980. Also recent drawings of his cat Tippy & a self portrait entitled "Fantasy Hovel" which was created in El Reno, Oklahoma, George's summer excursion into Tornado Alley.. where this year George was closer than he wanted to be when a large tornado hit El Reno. Luckily George's motel was spared.
George described "Albino Amazon" as a woman "of Science and a woman of jungle intellect clash against the turbulence of exotica". I love that the jungle lady is wearing an octopus skirt and red pumps. just as you'd expect. See more of George's art work here....
