LEN GERWICK PAINTINGS INTRODUCTION
The artist Leonard Gerwick has used his skills in a most profound way, since the mid 1960's. Besides being a career puppeteer, he has pursued painting seriously and continues to show and sell his art throughout New England and Massachusetts. Any one who enjoys his creations can buy his paintings at the studio located in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
These paintings are directly marketed to the buyer from the studio, or through email and telephone conversations. Lenny believes it is important to interact with a customer in a personal way and is willing to show his work at any time a request is made.
His artwork is comprised of four genres: abstract art, figure paintings, landscape paintings and map drawings. These genres can be described as follows:
Many of Len Gerwick's paintings are abstract. Their main objective is to create visual rhythm which reflects orderly and expressive repetition. This is accomplished in various ways through the use of acrylic paints, collage and assembled objects. The paint ranges from watercolor thin to impasto. Also, found objects are used to enhance the collages into a three dimensional masterpiece. The paintings are created by observing the relationship of forms, their proximity, how they overlap, the space between forms as well as the scale of one to another. Some of his art is made more appealing by placing them under framed glass or completing them on raw canvas. This skill is what makes many of these paintings unique.
Len has a great ability to paint figures and see multiple figures as rhythmic forms with special psychological components. These figure paintings can constitute contemporary, political or even mythological impressions. He believes that the empty spaces surrounding the figures are to be considered an important part of the composition.
Not only do Len Gerwick's figure paintings excel with the aid of rhythmic progression of forms, so does the popular genre of landscape art. In addition to painting these landscapes at specific sites, Lenny will more often achieve his results from memory or from imagination. His early landscapes were of the New England countryside and he still is influenced by the subtle tones that New England can provide.
Drawings made in highly focused detail is a particular skill that Lenny possesses. He has shown this ability in the very specialized body of work known as The Lost City This is an arrangement of eighteen maps of an imagined city where each map shows the growth or destruction for each century that it exists. The map creation currently covers eighteen hundred years and is quite fascinating to see the story unfold on paper. This group of maps must be sold as one body of work in order to state its meaning.
