-- the video Portrait of George Hardy here.[05:01]. In Portrait of George Hardy, a 30 minute Gabriel Coakley 1995 program we meet George Hardy, an elderly self-taught artist, living on the island of Deer Isle, Maine. Born on Deer Isle in 1917, Hardy has continued to live there ever since. After making a living as a mason, he began his career in folk art at the age of 60. Isolated from art trends, with no formal training and only a seventh-grade education, his work is concrete, raw, and direct. His sculpture is very much a part of his environment. From his roughened hands come the energized versions of wooden porcupines, tigers, red foxes with alligator teeth, blue howling coyotes, seagulls, and song birds.
