Gert Olsen
Artist Statement: A visit to Pietra Santa Italy started his fascination with Carrara Marble which evolved to 30 years of hand selecting marble from quarries in Europe and throughout the United States. About: Gert Olsen was born and educated in Denmark. He immigrated to Canada in 1956, then to the United States in 1956 . He started his career as a woodcarver which expanded to church carving. He transitioned to stone in the late 1970's. His works can be found in Wicks Park in Saugatuck! And if you find yourself in Naples Florida, you can see a larger than life Gert Bear, one of his larger commissions, at the Naples Bear Museum in Florida. Gert is one of the original Joyce Petter Gallery Artists! Process: The stone block is initially cut and shaped with modern saws and cutters, then further shaped with traditional carving equipment including chisels, both pneumatic and manual. The process continues with sanding, using many grades of sandpaper and culminates in polishing. He uses both pneumatic and manual chisels to transform blocks of marble into cuddly animals, studies of the human form, and novel abstract designs. His sculptures range from table top to monumental for indoor or outdoor display.
