Krak Studio Goes to the grunt

February 12 – 23, 1985

About the Program

Ken Gerberick, hailing from Missouri and San Francisco, worked as a commercial artist before coming to Vancouver. On Vancouver Island, he had been working on a site-specific installation for the previous fifteen years. It is a stunning and eerie arrangement of antique junk cars amid the lush forest of the Comox Valley. Ken is one of the founding members of the Central Island Arts Alliance and has been an active participant during its existence. Ken studied at Forest Park College in St. Louis and later at Victoria College of Art in Victoria. His self proclaimed "monkey at the typewriter school of art" has rendered a strong group of constructions and paintings. This work can turn the noun angst into a verb carrying the viewer into a dark forest of lost hope. Ultimately we find that hope within ourselves and are better for seeing the work.
