Pierre Gervois is a visual artist living and working in New York City. He started painting in 1988, and incorporated elements of language in his work in 2000. Since 2019, his work is the witness of the American society with our judgement, emotion, or stated point of view. Although he uses language in his work, Pierre Gervois is neither a novelist or a poet. The elements of language that inhabit his works do not exist separately from the entire artwork. They are organically part of the subject (the black rectangle) and the singularity (the small rectangle on the right side). These elements of language lose their meaning if they are considered separately and therefore cannot be considered as quotes. They are exactly what they are, in their purest and original intent, as markings on a material surface of undefined scale, in an unspecified location, at an unspecified time.
