Towards Tuscany by Gerry King
Towards Tuscany by Gerry King
In Iceland, a thermal pool seemingly descends to infinity. In Australia, the parched desert appears scrapped bare of features. Inspirations from such diverse sources coalesce into Dr. Gerry King’s current series. These works clearly relate to landscape yet are more concerned with emotional response and impression. Neither photographs, nor paintings nor traditional sculpture, these works exhibit some of the qualities of each. Dr. King will discuss the use of glass as his primary material while reflecting on the naturalism of his imagery.
