Gilbert´s central theme is based on investigating the variety of ways to address the organic forms of nature and its constant evolution through art. He is also interested in the aging surfaces of the planet and in the traces that time bares on earth. Magma 42 x 59.jpg Membrane 18 x 24.JPG He uses the organic forms as reference to explore and experiment with organic patterns which are created, among other things, by manipulating the consistency of the paint as it flows throught different surfaces and by intervening and accentuating certain areas with mixed media drawings. Gilbert relates the accidental spontaneity of the works, with the spontaneity and unpredictability of our lives. Beginning 30 x 40.jpg As a continuity of his investigation he also focuses on the conscience, instincts and complexity of the human being in a figurative series. He is curious of when and how this complexity began so I explore those introspective stages, processes and phenomenon's that go thru our minds in order to understand better our reality.
