CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
An abstract paint collage on a line graph with text and images of geometric shapes, graphs, and a map laid on top. Primary colours accent the collage: a yellow filled line graph on bottom left, a blue diagonal line graph in center, and a vertical red bar on the right edge. The work refers to the “Truth Seeker Company” that Geuer founded in 1973, as a tongue-in-cheek umbrella under which he could continue his researches the connections between art and science and what he considered the public's indifference toward creativity. This collage is a bridge-work of Geuer’s shift began to move away from painting towards a more mixed media practice.
