Gerb’s Gadgetry: See, View, Play
Gerb says: “If at first you don’t succeed, try epoxy.”
A pack-rat extraordinaire, artist and inventor Steve Gerberich recycles long-overlooked materials to create elaborate clanking, clanging, whirring, buzzing sculptures. His whimsical take on popular culture engages viewers on multiple levels. Describing his art as “analog work for the digital age,” Gerberich forces us to step back from our high-tech world and let the mechanized motions of each of his creations carry us on a tour of our own memories—as filtered through his imagination.
Gerb says: “Everything looks better in a museum.”
Welcome to the weird, wacky, wonderful world of “Gerbo.” Enter, and embrace your inner child!
—Mara Williams, Chief Curator
