About Gerard Sexton
Photographer cum New Media artist/fabric designer living in Oxfordshire. Gerards art is difficult to categorise perhaps because he has no formal training other than a year on a foundation course back in 1970. His work is exclusively created with computer software blending shapes and colours and occasionally subtlety overlaying his own photographic imagery. He readily admits it is all experimental and each piece evolves through random creations of non deliberate marks which are then layered perhaps reoriented through 90 degrees and blended multiple times until he decides to stop. They have a universal appeal with bold colours that perhaps echo the early post modernists. Often he likes to adopt titles that reference his inspiration. But largely the works sits alone. The viewer is left to their own to take what they want from what they see. There are no messages or no themes each a unique creation sold as limited edition prints. Recently he has transformed some of his artwork into designs for silk scarves which are for sale through his web pages and selective retailers.
