With a passion for art and a drive to create starting at an early age, Jerry’s paintings, installations and sculptures expose a truly sensitive artist whose pieces have the power to provoke a profound response in the viewer.
Inspired by the colors, architecture and design he has seen in his travels around the globe, Jerry has developed a painting technique that allows him to push the boundaries of hard-edge geometric color abstraction and expression, creating layers within layers of details in each of his paintings, using geometric and abstract forms in his work as a reference to his surroundings. His innovative style uses acrylics and oils on large canvases and are abstract in nature.
There are four major series; Modern, Abstract, Solids and Sculptures. They are brash in their use of color and form and electrifying to experience from any angle. Each series is distinctive and expand on the visual language of abstract painting in which his acute awareness of color and composition is evident.
The studio is a place of expression and experimentation and is flexible enough to allow Jerry to easily transition from sculpting to painting and sketching. The range of colors and materials is what you first notice while visiting along with the desert light streaming in and classical music always playing.
Starting out as a potter in Los Angeles, Jerry’s work became well known internationally. Mikasa discovered him and for the next 30 years, his name became synonymous with luxury tableware. From Mikasa work came other luxury companies including Lenox, Yamazaki, Reed and Barton and Cambridge Silversmith. Now Gerald has taken his creative energy into a new direction with the introduction of the Gerald Patrick Art Studio in Palm Springs, CA where approximately 100 of his abstract canvases are displayed.
