(b 1963Russia. Lives and works in Moscow)
Gerke says, “I am an engineer by education and for the last 30 years I’ve been in the advertising business. For the last few years I’ve painted a lot. I don’t have an artist’s biography: I haven’t participated in exhibitions, did not sell… I create abstract geometrical texts. Their main idea is the fascination of a straight line, which having a beginning and an end, is the basis of harmony. I’m trying to bring geometry, dreams and fantasies together, or notes in the margins of consciousness”.
