Gerard Geer - "Resting Under Polyp Trees" - assorted animal bones and mixed media - 17 x 28cm (6.6"x11")
Gerard Geer (Melbourne, Australia) merges creativity with chemistry and anatomy in his artistic practice. His fascination with biological processes and all things anatomical is integral to his work. This fascination led to his undertaking of a bachelor of biological sciences degree at Latrobe University, which he is currently completing. Geer utilises a combination of naturalistic articulation of animal specimens and amalgamations of interspecific forms to create fantastical hybrid creatures. Geer is self-taught in all of the techniques he uses in creating his artworks. On the rare occasions he is not working towards his degree or creating new pieces, he teaches Australia’s first and only skeletal articulation classes.
