Yvonne  Gerych

Artist statement:

Intrigued by the mortality of the flesh and the immortality of the spirit, by the enigmas of human existence and everlasting nature, Gerych attempts to explore existential themes. Her preoccupation with existentialism undoubtedly stems from her experiences while living under a communist dictatorship. From the ornate Baroque style of Prague churches to the rural simplicity of her grandparents’ farm in the country, all her upbringing informs her work. Striving to mediate accessibility to her innermost thoughts, Gerych ultimately views her ceramic sculptures as a gateway to the artist’s idiosyncratic emotions and the unfathomable ways of the creative process.
