Gerald’s art work has always explored the political from a very personal and philosophical perspective. More recently there has been a growing, outreaching to the social and environmental influences in both his work and personal life. After years of limited capacity from chronic back pain and the full time relocation to North Queensland he has been able to become more involved in the political life of NQ.
He is on the board of the North Queensland Conservation Council and actively involved in renewable energy and anti fossil fuel campaigns nationally and locally.

At Bimblebox:
The Bimblebox Art Project offers me the opportunity to extend the conceptual basis of my work into the interrelation of people with the environment. My work has previously focused on ways of being in the world but from a mostly introspective and philosophical perspective. This project and body of work will focus on the outward manifestation of our ways of being through the direct contrast of conservation and deep ecological values with coal mining and exploitation.
I am looking to compare and contrast the landscapes and peoples’ approaches to land and land use and their indications for the future.
