What Jane Rosen has to say about Gerard’s work might shed some light here: Trained in figuration with a bent towards minimalism and eccentric spirituality, the work navigates spacial relationships which generate an emotional stance. Fragments and places that occupy the various pieces are a stand in for the energies of the body and the presence of landscape without depicting them in a literal way. Much as fractals and crystals offer a fragmented view of the parts that they reflect, one can only glimpse pieces of a puzzle while sensing the whole in a playful and mysterious way. --rw
