Australia 1988

Characteristically speaking, Gervaise’s paintings can be interpreted as scrolls denoting some kind of ancient or alien-like language indecipherable to the contemporary eye, or a transference of knowledge and data; Matrix’s for later forensic use – a semiotic real that resonates in another time and place far  from the present. His unorthodox approach to the pictorial surface could be said to tease out both the problematics of and provocation for abstract painting; getting beyond one kind of reality and enabling the entrance of other forms of being and knowing entirely – perhaps resisting emotional responses all together - remaining far from ‘expressive’ gestures of any known kind.
