Celebrated for his bold, origami-inspired, metal sculptures that explore psychologically complex themes; Gerardo Hacer’s introduction to the nostalgic art form began at age seven when a volunteer in one of his foster homes read, “Sadako And The Thousand Paper Cranes” by Eleanor Coerr.
His reductive reinvention of the aesthetic evolved technically over decades along with its conceptual counterpart. The resulting work is an amalgamation of innocent childhood play, indirect exposure [in adulthood] to Alexander Calder’s fluid experimentation with form and [after recruitment by renown art fabricator, Peter Carlson] first hand working knowledge of Jeff Koons novel approach to materials, John McCracken’s exhaustive attention to detail and Ellsworth Kelly’s steadfast commitment to minimalism.
The perfection of his technique in combination with monumental vision have manifested museum and national art fair exhibitions and realized massive, permanent sculptural installations that include Wynn Macau Luxury Resort, The Los Angeles Pacific design Center, University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, OH; Los Angeles Trade Technical College and Autry National Center Southwest Museum.
