Gaye Jurisich was born in Rotongaro near Huntly, she is now a proud Hamiltonian and has lived all her life in rural and semi-rural landscapes, she says this informs her practice.
“My career has been driven by the abstract foundations. By using materials that transform and react with each other I can create surfaces that push and pull and define my ambiguous process. I alternate between erasing and drawing, wiping away and adding, as the works reveal various cycles of compositions, in a complex mix of gestures and intrusions. Sometimes only ghosts and impediments remain leaving just a trace of my action”.
Backstories: the stuff that fills the mind and creates the drive to create
Humour: the stuff that makes me laugh
Truth: the stuff we should all be aware of
