These  are a selection of recent  ballet  and Shakespeare paintings .

 

Gerard  has worked in the theatre and has also completed a series of theatre based Fine Art Residencies and these have helped to shape and inform his work.

 

He says:

"The theatre has the capacity for transformation and change and it is these pictorial possibilities that I explore in my  work.This is most evident through the use of costume, make-up, lighting etc.; and the paintings depict the dancers as they go about their daily routines and backstage activities "
