Product Description

Twisted and roguish, bizarre and eerie, dark erotic or even satirically exaggerated - Gernot's "Bizarre Gallery" is a fetishistic vision of beauty and funky "Heavy Rubber" scenes, technically brilliantly realized. His drawings, paintings and objects span a wide range from classic pinup to modern high-tech fetishism.

The freelance artist, illustrator and sculptor Gernot, born in Rosenheim / Bavaria, lives and works in Landshut near Munich. In the late '70s and early' 80s he was impressed by superheroes like Fantomas, Batman, the English secret agent Emma Peel in her leather catsuit or the band Kiss in their crazy costumes. Drawing, painting and modeling have always been his passions, which he first translated into large-scale heavy metal paintings on the cabinets and walls of his nursery.
In 1987, he trained as a ceramist, enabling him to deepen his skills in mold making and plastic materials.


After a television portrait of the Schweitzer Dark Art artist and alien inventor HR Giger, the decision was mainly devoted to painting. During this time Gernot worked in various experimental metal and industrial projects with eg "Orgasm Death Gimmick" and "the Ungeist" (guitar and programming). The result was awe-inspiring, large-format oil paintings of mechanical engineering, which were shown in a first exhibition. Soon after, however, the artist turned his preference for the bizarre and unusual, especially in relation to the female body and fetish-erotic.
Inspirations from the dark wave scene of the 1980 / 90s, from silent film and B-movie heroines like Luise Brooks and Vampira, the 40s and 50s Publications of the legendary John Willie ("The Adventures of Sweet Gwendoline" / "Bizarre Magazine"), Bettie Page and the early "Club Caprice" (Cora!) Editions led to first experiments with Feisch-Kunst. Dangerous-looking mistresses, buxom pony girls, masked nuns and rubberized maids followed. Soon, fetish magazines such as Jürgen Boedt's SECRET and TWILIGHT printed his work.
Since 1997 he has been illustrating congenially the fetishotic stories for Peter Czernich's MARQUIS and became a regular contributor to the magazine. Since 1998, Gernot earns his living as a freelance artist, with logo design, story illustrations, cover art, as well as freelance work and assignments for private clients.


Gernot paints and draws his bizarre characters usually with a wink, often cartoonesk exaggerated, but always with technical finesse and seriousness. Computers are used only for scanning, for retouching and typography, not for creating images.
The intense involvement with resin (resin), silicone, latex and other plastic materials led in 2002 to the production of some fetish figures, including for ICONIA.
In 2005 he created designs and shapes for bizarre latex products, especially masks, corsets and textured latex. The production also took place in the own workshop.
In 2008 he invested after elaborate attempts to paint T-shirts and to paint by hand sieves in a small screen printing plant in order to be able to produce limited editions and shirts in the future.
In 2011 he released his first picture book "Bizarre Gallery - The Art Of Gernot", which was presented in Amsterdam as part of his art show "Rubber, Frills and Thrills" in cooperation with the Sexy Art Gallery, Demask and Wasteland.


"I'm trying to implement my own vision of bizarre sexiness and craftsmanship without being overly influenced by trends, hypes, or other fetish artists - there's nothing more boring than copying / repeating on short-lived styles - it's bad, at least in my case - many years and occasional failures to find and develop his own style. "
Twisted and roguish, bizarre and eerie, dark erotic or even satirically exaggerated - Gernot's "Bizarre Gallery" is a fetishistic vision of beauty and funky "Heavy Rubber" scenes, technically brilliantly realized. His drawings, paintings and objects span a wide range from classic pinup to modern high-tech fetishism.
Apart from that, together with my life partner Helena I deal a lot with wood, plaster and other plastic materials, leather and especially latex. We build molds for masks, corsets, etc., occasionally custom framed picture frames, leather / rubber harness and in between a didgeridoo or a cigarbox slide guitar (two top secret passions ...)
