Gerard Maurier Merchant's Profile

About

Gerard Merchant
Gerard Merchant was born December 3, 1959 in Lynchburg, Virginia; located in southeastern United States. Gerard is an artist who works primarily in wood sculpture. His passion and vision is allowing natural form to be reborn. His sculptures emerge through a process of retakes and variations that mark his creative journey of examining the ambiguity between his vision and the wood’s already exquisite origination in the sculptress, Mother Nature. Gerard considers creating works of art a gift which is executed using unclear and less formal rules and which should always reference the partnership with Mother Nature.
