Works in Frank Gerritz current London Exhibition :
Gerritz’s MDF drawings render light and modulate it to such an extent that the experience is akin to moving into a sculptural space. Similarly, the artist’s works on anodized aluminium encompass a genuinely physical experience. Here the metal support turned into a body of light, at the same time offset and articulated by dark black areas of oil paint-stick, drawn onto the cool anodised aluminium surface. In this instance composed over four panels, “Temporary Ground I Territory I The Sleeper” exhibited in Edinburgh is spaced precisely along its horizontal axis. The initially flat appearance of the works pulls the viewer to its sides, revealing its three-dimensional composition. The work appears to float at a carefully calibrated distance from the wall, the resulting shadow-gap further elevating the sculptural nature of the piece.
