Gerald Ferguson, Selected paintings and Works on Paper, North Gallery, co-curated by Charlene Daignault
In the short time that Daignault knew Gerald Ferguson, originally as an intern at Wynick/Tuck Gallery, her connection with him and his work grew exponentially.
Daignault states "In selecting the works for the exhibition I felt an overwhelming urge to include at least one work from each of Ferguson 's series as each is integral to the development and exploration of the next. As space allowed, I have succeeded in doing that, as well as sharpening the focus on technique and subject matter.
Together they form an astounding body of work with great integrity and amazing continuity and, as Jerry would have it, "beauty through the back door".
Monica Tap: Study Notes, New Studies and Paintings, South Gallery
"I collect short videos while traveling or commuting using a cell phone or lo-res camera, simply recording the landscape as it rolls past. This produces very many still frames which I sort through, looking for that certain something. Once an image or run of images has caught my eye, I need to get acquainted with it. These small acrylic studies are my way of seeing, of coming to understand an image, on the way to creating a full scale painting."
