Anthony Gerace

Don’t let the ragged edges and salvaged scraps fool you: Anthony Gerace’s work is painstakingly precise. The London-based artist’s approach is a beguiling combination of the intuitive and the mechanical, with a heightened emphasis on the hand-crafted physicality of collage. His work often raises questions around time and memory through pieces that celebrate and negotiate the inherent deterioration of ephemera and printed matter. Repetition is another common thread, with some mosaic-like works presenting rows upon rows of tiny squares, meticulously cut and arranged to form disarming interventions into found photographic imagery.
