"The tides are so very important to us. Gravity clasped particles together to create our planet, and placed it in orbit around the Sun. Which in turn creates the tides that allowed life forms to leave the seas and move onto land."

BIOGRAPHY
GERRY JOE WEISE was born in 1959 in Sydney, Australia. Where in this immense country he took his first steps to becoming a painter. As with many Australian artists, Weise chose to exile himself and gather experiences in Europe, the old continent. That is where his artistic career began, with several exhibitions in Paris, Toulouse, Bonn, Munich and Brussels, during the 1980s.
TECHNIQUE. Gerry Joe Weise doesn't limit himself to only one technique. His artwork uses natural materials like pigments, bark, earth, wood, metal, slate; and other techniques like photography, collage, and engraving photographic negatives to create imaginary constellations.
RITUAL - GROUND PAINTINGS. His works of art exist beyond earthly boundaries and beyond all limits. One must have primordial knowledge about Ritual Art to measure the abundance of Gerry Joe Weise's artwork. That is the ritualist formation behind the spirals, where ritualism is well traced-out with the ritualistic ground schemas created with pigments on earth. The longer you look, the more it becomes clear that the quest for a ritual, is also the quest for order, way beyond the chaos.
The COLLAGES use a variety of techniques. Landscapes can be looked at from a 2 dimensional to a 3 dimensional view. This theme is trying to obtain a 4th dimensional aspect, the "inner-soul" of the landscape.
The most significant characteristic of Weise's PHOTOGRAPHY, is its anti-gravitational aspect, and its overwhelming scale in thickness of vegetation, where silence and cacophony simultaneously carve through the dense air.

BIOGRAPHIE (en français)
GERRY JOE WEISE est né en 1959 à Sydney en Australie. C'est dans cet immense pays qu'il fait ses premiers pas en peinture. Comme beaucoup d'artistes australiens, Weise choisit l'exil, pour récolter les expériences sur le vieux continent, l'Europe. C'est là que commence véritablement sa carrière, dans les années 80, tout en multipliant les expositions à Paris, Toulouse, Bonn, Munich ou Bruxelles.
TECHNIQUE. Gerry Joe Weise ne se limite pas à une seule technique. Son travail utilise à la fois des matériaux naturels comme les pigments, l'écorce, la terre, le bois, le métal, l'ardoise, et des techniques telles que la photographie, le collage, et la pellicule photographique pour y graver des constellations imaginaires.
RITUEL - PIGMENTS SUR TERRE. Son art existe en dehors de toutes limites, de toutes frontières terrestres. Une connaissance de l'Art rituel est primordiale pour mesurer l'ampleur de l'oeuvre de Gerry Joe Weise. Voilà bien la formation ritualiste des spirales. Le ritualiste suit des chemins tout tracés : les schèmas ritualistes sur les sols, confectionnés avec des empreintes des pigments sur terre. Plus vous les regardez, plus il devient clair que cette quête du rituel est une autre manifestation de la quête d'un ordre, en deçà et au-delà du chaos.
Les COLLAGES emploient une variété de techniques du montage. Des paysages peuvent être regardés des 2 dimensionnels à une vue 3 dimensionnelle. Le thème essaye d'obtenir un aspect 4 dimensionnel, l'intérieur - âme du paysage.
La caractéristique la plus significative de la PHOTOGRAPHIE de Weise, est son aspect anti-de la gravité, et l'épaisseur de la végétation, où comme silence est cacophonie découpez simultanément par l'air dense.
