Matthys Gerber Catalogue
|Author:||Matthys Gerber, Natasha Bullock, Sue Cramer et al|
Sydney artist Matthys Gerber is a deft painter who deliberately makes work in an array of contrasting styles. From photorealism to fluid abstaction, portraits and still lifes, Gerber's interests remain wide-ranging and his approach incessantly experimental.
The motif of the Rorschach reappears in his paintings. In varying colours, sizes and styles that morph into different physical forms, from the canvas to the wall, the Rorschach epitomises the intentions of Gerber's work to reflect the nature of desire and the will to find figurative elements in abstract forms.
The Musuem of Contemporary Art Australia's exhibiton is the most comprehensive collection of Gerber's work ever staged in Australia. This beautiful slip-cased, hardcover exhibiton catalogue features full colour plates, list of works and essays by senior curator Natasha Bullock, Mitchell Cumming, Blair French and more.
This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of Gerber’s work ever staged in Australia.
