Gaye Jurisich is a Hamilton-based artist of many years of experience. Her work includes painting and sculpture in a variety of media. He cited,“ It has become more and more obvious to me that my works are a dialogue that involves the reality of space and time, visual associations and ambiguity."
His works reveal elements of the journey, the familiar becoming unfamiliar, and the known becoming unknown. Elements of trust, human mortality and feminist ideology are exploration points.
It is important that the challenges of his work ideals initiate thought and provokes discussion about connectedness, to our past and future. He believed that there is a sense of motion, redefining the adventure of life’s journey when walking along with a large work or when coming upon it as a series of encounters in time.
It isn’t about making beautiful things, it’s more than that, a deeper purpose, although he can’t always pinpoint or describe it as eloquently as he would like.
Embedding the work in the landscape, integrating the specificity of surroundings, and corresponding to and emphasizing direction are important aspects.
