Georgesco states, "As a child I was recognized for my art work. My Paintings lined the school halls and hung in the principals office. My father [whom was] an internationally recognized architect backed me 100%. He told me if I stuck to my guns with art I would always be free. I was lucky to know my path in life early on. My Father was instrumental in exposing me to Modernism through his work. He never spoke about himself but I learned the Modern style from watching."

In 1968 Georgesco graduated from Palisades High School and moved directly down the Highway from Venice Beach. During “The Light and Space” and “Art and Technology Movements” in 1968, Chris' aptitude toward Geometry and Sculpture were well understood so he moved forward to Abstracting Minimalism.

"Things had gone as simple as possible and I could only see moving outward. Outer Space and Infinity have been prime factors in my work. I was blown away when I learned the sky did not end and have found myself working in cyclitic aspects. I think of my sculpture as the place in space circles have in common. The sculpture being the inner space leaves the predominate portion of my sculptures in outer space. Outer space is what I try to form and activate using the sculptures as templates. The Stainless Steel in my recent pieces has brought light into my work. I began dividing the rectangle which I preferred over the square, elegant and elongated. I developed a series of forms, interchangeable in position and scale which evolves today 42 years later. When building Sculpture I know exactly where each piece fits. Making cardboard models to scale a practice I learned working in the drafting room."

Christopher Georgesco's style comes from his father’s Modern Architecture with a mix of his own choice of style and materials: Wood, Concrete and Steels. His exposure to Modernism was early having a father in both the Bauhaus and Modernist Movements. "It is hard to dispute Modernism. Less is More. It is timeless. Le Corbusier made a big impression. I leased a 5,000 sq ft. wharehouse in Venice Beach from 1968-1982 for $235 a month. I finished my first body of work in 1970. "Wood and Canvas" The New Talent Committee from LACMA would stop by yearly and one of the committee members Joni Gordon started a Gallery Newspace were I showed for 35 years with exception of Jan Turner and Fred Hoffman. Before 1994 I was forced into a South Central L.A. Studio for 6 years to keep my overhead low enough to keep building sculpture. It was unsafe for my new wife and once again I found safe low overhead on the outskirts of Palm Springs where I live today."
