Fernando Gerassi Art

This painter has a sense of vigorous transposition, for he carries out plastic and chromatic research to the necessary point of integration. He can express himself subtly through the medium of delicate gouaches or he also can - as in his still-life with straw hat - treat various areas of canvas with breadth and freshness. He shows deep feeling for his art; and in his portraits - at times more hesitant and restless - and in his vigorous landscapes, rich and forceful, he is definitely a lover of a technique that calls for a composition at once plain and rich texture, a technique which scorns brio and easy effects. A unique painter's temperament, a rare understanding of painting.(Gallery Billiet-Worms.)
