Sydney artist Matthys Gerber is a deft painter who deliberately makes work in an array of contrasting styles. From photorealism to fluid abstraction, 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. This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of Gerber’s work ever staged in Australia.
