Biography and Statement

Gwen Gerard is born in Nantes (44, France).
           After a disappointing experience at the art studio: Met Peningehn in Paris, she joined the faculty of St. Charles Paris I, where she studied with Michel Journiac.

          Then in 1991, Gwen Gerard moved for twelve years in Chicago USA, her work, while focused on painting  will then be directed towards the volume and installation.During this period she participated in multiple events (Around the Coyote) and continued  to show in galleries like Klein Artworks, Mindi OH, Beret International, World Tattoo ... etc. She was represented by the gallery IDAO and maintained close relations with the French Cultural Services in Chicago, which supported her work and especially in her project "Turning" in 1999 with the piece the "Exit Ferris Wheel".

          In 2002 's she is back in the south of France where she realizes more and more projects in Situ as "De Retour" in Celles , "Il  Etait Une Fois" in Aniane or Live-Motif" in Octon. She participates in art events such as Le Manif in Nîmes (30 FR)," Les Batardises" in  Landeronde-Vendée (85 FR) or  the Biennale in Cachan (94 FR) .
