GERARDO HACER

Renown 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 which is an amalgamation of exposure to Alexander Calder’s bold, playful sculpture and [after recruitment by renown art fabricator, Peter Carlson] first hand working knowledge of Jeff Koons’ steadfast attention to detail and Ellsworth Kelly’s exhaustive 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.

Permanent installations include Wynn Macau Luxury Resort, The Los Angeles Pacific design Center, University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, OH and Autry National Center Southwest Museum.

B. 1976, lives & works in Los Angeles, CA.
