Yorgos Georgiadis was a student at the Athens School of Fine Arts under Yannis Pappas (1954 - 1959) and then studied metal technique in Florence. A central form in the artist's work is the female figure, shown seated and dressed in the chiton of antiquity, which outlines every detail of her silhouette. The mutilated, headless figures, with their distorted movement, the instability of their postures, and their dynamics, were a channel for creativity for the artist for more than 40 years. In spite of this, Georgiadis's preoccupation with a primary motif in no sense restricted his range of expression. His early sculptures of seated figures (1960 - 1967) are possessed of a realistic and narrative character, 'left-overs' perhaps from his student days. Thereafter, his sculpture developed a stronger abstractive trend, based upon symbolist allusions and an expressionist mood. The need for personal expression and release took precedence over "the heavy inherited burden", as he describes the 'Greekness' carried around by Greeks, thus giving the artist an incentive for his art to evolve.
With the passage of time, Georgiadis introduced a host of variations into his work, such as musical instruments (for example, the lute), a baby in its mother's arms, and added female forms in the sculptural group, whereas elsewhere woman is depicted allegorically as a winged victory. A fundamental characteristic in the whole of the artist's work is the diachronic rendering of the figures, as he draws inspiration from the psychological mood of the moment and the expression of his own reflections and emotions.
