Artist Statement
by Jay Gerber

As a scientist, I've always been excited about discovery and creating something new. Abstract painting, like scientific research, also gives me the opportunity to discover and create. I like to experiment with different techniques and see what happens, see what effect I can create. Often a painting turns out different than what I had in mind when I started it. It feels as if the painting is leading me to its finish.

Most of my paintings are abstracts, or extractions of something seen or perhaps unseen in nature, including the universe and unseen energy. They are part from concrete reality. Some of my paintings include strokes of paint that suggest a means of communication that is language, or figures that might tell a story. Many paintings are nonobjective and perhaps unknowable and invite you, the viewer, to bring your unique experience to enjoy each artistic piece.
