William S. Burroughs
Gerard came to know William Burroughs during the mid-seventies while living in Europe. They went on to travel together, share the same hotels, stayed in the same houses and as a result become friends. William Burroughs was not only a great writer and poet, known through such books as “Junkie” and “Naked Lunch” but he also did so much more, i.e., movies, art and music. We've decided to share some of William's incredible and acerbic writing with you in this recording of him reading "Word's of Advice to Young People" - 4408 kb - 128k mp3

Christopher Cooper Angell - poems
This untitled poem by poet, writer and photographer Christopher Angell was written in Johannesburg, South Africa while he and Gerard were both working there in 2000-2001. A very compelling work which speaks not just to our common frailty or the human condition but addresses some of the real issues we have in our “have and have not” world. Christopher is the Assistant Executive Director of CrossPathCulture (New York). Chris has recently moved back to America from Johannesburg where was the Director of CrossPathCulture Centre - South Africa, 2001-2003.

Cameras of the Late Nineties to 2000s - Gerard and Java Script
This html based media was created by Gerard as navigation for the “1990's Lobby” in “The Galleries” section of our web site. It's an interesting use of “image swapping” and “image restore” java script. Gerard used the two work horses of his career as the motif for this page. Those workhorses being his 35mm Contax RTS II slr and his Nikon CoolPix 990 Digital Camera.

Kunstledematen
An early video render from one of Gerard's most noted and infamous performances. It was first performed in 1979 at De Appel – Centre for Contemporary Art, Amsterdam the Netherlands. The performance was reviewed in various art periodicals, world wide in the weeks that followed.
This performance is a painful account of Gerard’s youth, first as a handicapped individual, the Easter Seal Timmy (poster child), his development as an artist, and the art world in general.
While eating a cake in which the word “Kunstledematen” is printed as icing, he takes us through this sojourn. He consumes the cake until only the words “Kunst” (Art) are left and begins to vomit – continuing to eat the regurgitated cake. Suffice it to say it is a difficult video to watch. Gerard says that to this day he finds it difficult to watch, as it conjures up issues, which are too painful even for him.
A very compelling document of a complex inner struggle!

This version was recorded with the assistance of Video-Heads Amsterdam. Created originally as a ¾-inch video it was recently reduced to digital format by Gerard. A full DVD version is available on request by writing to pains@gerardpas.com

Kunstledematen is the Dutch / German word for Prosthesis or ARTifical limbs

Am I the Abstract
An early short video created by Gerard in 1979 at PUMPS, Vancouver, Canada. In this work, Gerard explores the idea that if your body is deformed, does it make you an abstract? Working on the premise that his atrophied polio inflicted left leg does indeed make him abstract, he attempts to point this out in the same way that abstract painters realized their figure studies.

The Mirror
Sometimes as artists we confuse the proximity of our work to the society in which we live in. The lines become confused and we forget that though we are all part of society, we can also be very much apart from that same society. For example, an individual who spends his waking days around criminals, in their car, on the street and at their work, might be a cop and not a crook.
After a very successful series of personal consultations with a clinical psychologist, Gerard created this short Web Cam Video of in which we have an opportunity to view his thoughts about his art.

911 - Monument to September 11th
Gerard lives a great deal of his life in New York City and was deeply touched by the events of Sept. 11th, 2001 or 9-11. We have dedicated a small section of this web site to Gerard's photos and thoughts on being in New York during the fall and winter of 2001. He made this small film as a reaction to 911. 911 being the number on our telephones for Emergency (in North America) and the debacle of using the telephone on 911, make for an interesting paradox. There are two sizes for this short QuickTime Movie - the one provided here is the smaller of the two. Please visit this page dedicated to New York.

Vision of Utopia
This is one Gerard's very first Flash animation. For this animation he used one of his watercolour paintings titled “Vision of Utopia” 1986. In the animation his painting constructs itself from the sum of all its parts. A somewhat non-post-modern work! Where it post-modern it would of course deconstruct itself.

Sisyphus' Descendants

During the mid-nineties Gerard got, well he got a bad case of depression. It happens! Art is indeed one form of catharsis. These Flash Movies are taken from a rather large triptych (5 metres tall) which he painted with the head of pin. It's a simple pan up and down of the work.
"In Greek legend, Sisyphus was punished to roll a huge stone up a hill to the top. As it constantly rolled down again his task was everlasting."

Broken Mannequins or Art Dummies 2000
An early Macromedia Flash Movie made by Gerard. Titled “Broken Mannequins” or “Art Dummies”, this little (109 kb) piece simply has fun using a broken art mannequin. The sculpture was still photographed and then animated using frames in Flash. These little dolls are used by artists' to help understand the human anatomy and are also often used as a tool to compose figures in artists compositions.
Gerard Is currently trying to build up a large collection of these broken dummies (all sizes) for a future installation work. Should you have one of these common art mannequins and would like to donate it to this work, please contact us for further details by clicking here.

This self-portrait is a humorous little animation of the artist morphing from human form into that of another ??? It truly shows his elfin character. In fact, to be honest, we're not sure if this is an animation (which Gerard said it was when he gave it to us) or really just the documentation of a regular event in his life which occurs whenever he get's to a certain elevation high.

Gerard Pas | Musings and Cogitations

It's not that I feel I have a lot to say to the world that my art does not already say, but every now and then I do want to muse over my current situation, concerns and thoughts - thus this blog. I hope to focus on as many issues which both effect my daily life and the broader issues such as those found in this section. I am going to try to post a comment as often as is possible for me, within the constraints of time.

On Thursday 9th September 2004 the staff at Boddingtons at Strangeways Brewery were told of its intended closure at the end of February 2005. This is not the first time that Interbrew the Belgium owners of Boddingtons have tried to move the famous 'Cream of Manchester' out of the city. To read More click here.

Click on the above image to see a humorous old Boddingtons Ad with Melanie Sykes

Boddingtons: the 100% Mancunian 90% Welsh beer. Say what??? You have to be joking!

How can it be that Interbrew (the world’s largest volume brewer – InBev) could even think of moving Boddingtons Beer, commonly known internationally as “The Cream of Manchester” to a brewery in Wales? Boddingtons Beer has been brewed at Strangeways Brewery in Manchester City England for over 228 years, since 1778. Citing efficiency as the cause, Interbrew UK plans to move 90% of the brewery to its new canning facility in Wales, keeping the beer cask production in Manchester.

I consider Boddingtons Cream Ale (Boddies) one of the finest brews to have ever crossed my lips. The very idea that Interbrew would move the brewery from Manchester is perplexing to me. Its globalization gone mad: you know it is a sad day when your hometown beer becomes an import even though you are still living in your hometown.

I am encouraging you to help the lovers of Boddies worldwide, the citizens of Manchester and the brewery workers to keep their brewery at home by signing their petition to keep Boddingtons in Manchester. You can read more about Manchester’s concerns at their website www.savethecream.co.uk Remember to sign the petition.” GP

Our Important Friends Links

GerardPas.com is ninety nine percent about the art and activities of Gerard Pas, its hard not to be when you're called www.gerardpas.com. But GerardPas.com could not exist were it not for the fact that Gerard makes art and to make art you need to be able to communicate with your peers, your community and society as a whole. This means that as an artist Gerard also integrates within the larger community of artists, views their art and anticipates critique both public and private. We're part of the world and as an international artist; you begin to realize just how small this world becomes and the threshold of those who hold power in it. Thanks to the web all artists have an opportunity to share their art on a global scale. As an artist it's not just left up to museums and galleries to publish your catalogue and send it to their constituency of supporters to have your work seen. With the web, an electric plug, a box of wire and silicon and knowledge is all that is truly required. Knowledge becomes the key. Knowledge of the web, of photo manipulation and of web programming. Gerard has worked in Africa assisting artist there set up simple solutions to bringing their art onto the web and be seen outside of the parameters sometimes isolated environments. This is why LINKS are so important to us - we want to share all of the bounty, the cornucopia of great art and culture which humankind can provide.

This is also a must see site: just catch it's clever URL address “www.momao.com”, which means Museum Of My Art Only and not the Museum of Modern A... or mo Mao... whatever!  A really cool, like totally cool and well designed web site! Hongtu is the best C.I.A. artist in the all of the USA. C.I.A. meaning Chinese Artist in America and not what you'd otherwise think. In fact, Hongtu was one of the first artists who had to flee China during the Chinese Cultural Revolution - he's since been back.
“I truly consider Hongtu a great man. His heart is big enough to bridge between China and New York, his current home. I worked and travelled with him while we were both in South Africa. I saw in his work and soul a compassion for his fellow human being which can be compared to none. Were the world full of people like him, what a world it would be!” G.P.
You can see images of Hongtu with Gerard in London while they were there visiting the New Modern Tate Museum.

Interviews with artists such as Damien Hirst, Dennis Oppenheim and Pipilotti Rist, it's hard to beat.

Visit the Aporia Press

The drawings, comics and Publishing House "Aporia Press" of Marcel Guldemond. Marcel is a great illustrator and excellent cartoonist, as you will see. His books are a marvel to behold and full of real content. His comics show a side of our humanness which few other comics do. Like most artists, Marcel is his own best patron and while his comics are selling well, he is also one of the finest programmers on the web - in a commercial sense. Whenever we run into problems, we run to Marcel, who is always willing to help. Marcel is considered family by Gerard and was one of his first students. He's got a powerful motorbike to. If we weren't all in wheelchairs, the very same bike we'd all be riding. Okay maybe not! The maybe being: we're not all in wheelchairs, that is. But big momma won't let us get bikes.

The paintings of Karen Suk, who is living somewhere on a remote island on the Pacific Ocean - North West. Karen was a student of Gerard's when he was a Studio Instructor at Redeemer University, Canada. Like any good relationship which stems from teaching, Karen and Gerard became friends. "First you stand in front of them. Then alongside them. Finally, you stand behind them!" G.P. Gerard takes no true credit for any of his student's success, reminding them always that “Success in art is only measured by the success of each work and not by a set of principles calculated by career.” G.P.

Nicole Pas is Gerard's daughter. She also collaborates and creates several sites on the web. That's when she's not playing her cello. Designing and re-designing her room, complete with floor plans and drawings, using exacting measurements. She also makes art and reads a volume of literature which makes her Aunt Margaret (Head of Adult Services at the Brooklyn Public Library) proud. She designed her first web site at the age 9 and is slowly becoming a seasoned pro. At her current tender age of 14 she is the apple of Gerard's eye. “Nicole brings me such overwhelming joy. Her brilliance astounds me. It is not simply a veneer of facile childish platitudes but a deep and thoughtful understanding, which far exceeds her years. She will always be my sweetest heart and as her name implies, from the Greek: the victorious conqueror. She already owns my heart!" G.P.
