The multifarious nature of crowds is explored in Gerrard’s intensely meticulous monochrome drawings and paintings. The congregation of figures on mass in urban public spaces can be both compelling and unsettling. Using images from newspapers and the Internet, Gerrard’s work gives a birds eye view of this potent scenes of unity and protest.
