Bits and Pieces by Gerald Baise

Reclining Figure
This exhibition is Baise's second at artSPACE durban and once again involves Baise’s fascination with wood - 
laminating, chiselling, rasping, sanding and deconstructing.  Simply shapes without philosophical import that is pleasing to the viewer and engender a desire to touch and feel the wood.
Biography: Gerald Baise studied with the late Basil Jones for several years and has had 5 previous sculpture 
exhibitions.  He works almost exclusively in wood both indigenous and imported. The main focus is on simple shapes manipulating the wood to achieve this with little emphasis on the grain.
Exhibitions close on 26 May at 2:00pm
