In Conversation Alan Rankle + Gerard Waskievitz
The painter Gerard Waskievitz transforms the everyday and the bizarre into splendid surreal compositions. With idiosyncratic shimmering color gradients and a light that seems to come from within, he ennobles every motif. By painting it, he is bowing to life! (Dr.Carola Muysers)
Alan Rankle continues to develop the primary themes for which he has become widely known; namely those works relating to the Romantic tradition in landscape art and what the artist describes as the ‘increasingly fragmented and clearly insanely broken relationship of our global societies to the natural environment’.(Ian McNay in Art North Magazine)
For anyone who has followed their individual careers the carefully curated project gives an added dimension to the appreciation of the artists current works. A dialogue in contemporary painting.
