Red Clover Gallery in Landrum, SC, Offers Works by Guntram Gersch
The Red Clover Gallery in Landrum, SC, will present the exhibit, Symphony of Form, featuring paintings by Guntram Gersch, on view from Oct. 20 through Dec. 5, 2007.
Gersch's story begins in the years preceding WW II in Glatz, Silesia, which is now part of Poland. After the war, his family joined thousands of other èmigrès, and settled in Germany. Gersch continued moving, landing first in Honduras and continuing to Chicago where he found his calling in art. His life has been a story of external movement from Chicago, to the Middle East, to rural Wisconsin, to Tryon, NC, and his art became a record of internalization of the diverse environments. Gersch currently divides his time between Tryon and Evian, France.
Gersch discovered his love for art in Chicago in the sixties. He was greatly influenced by abstract artists such as Jackson Pollock and Hans Hofman, and he used the light and sun drenched color he found in Lebanon and Cypress to establish a visual language and tell his story. Words such as vitality, freedom, and exuberance have often been used to describe Gersch's work and his paintings clearly attest to the process of recording his feelings and impressions.
Gersch's work has been displayed in galleries in Switzerland, England, the US, and Germany and is currently held in private collections from Europe to the Middle East. His presence is a credit to the engaging atmosphere of the Tryon area, and the Red Clover Gallery is fortunate to host such an accomplished and influential artist.
