When Gerd Maron paints, he lets his imagination take over. "From the gut" he draws sweeping, rhythmic lines across the page, uncontrolled, dreamily obeying only his feeling in the best surrealist manner. The lines enclose areas which are then filled in either with strict line patterns or loose structures. They form figures, symbols and ornamental shapes: circles, spirals, diamonds, 5 and 6 pointed stars, animals and people.
In constant alternation the freedom of the imagination and ordering reflection are brought to complement each other. Different feelings become denser, complex forms. A beast of prey, with dangerously flashing teeth appears to be carrying a being on his back, half woman, half fish.
His paintings are expressions of his huge Phantasie.
