Love the Greatest Healer tells the story of how love can overcome severe adversity. It starts with Gerald’s journey from childhood into youth including his passion for endurance races. In 1984, this saw him compete in the toughest race in the world and run 10 marathons. Then, in the early 1990s Gerald suffered a paranoid psychosis which hospitalised him for several years. This book tells of his struggles and triumph over adversity and how the love of family and friends saved and healed his mind, body and spirit. He also describes how art played a significant role in his healing process and how love can conquer any situation no matter how bad it gets.
In 2012, I went back to East London University to complete a Masters Degree In Fine Art.
Which was exciting and very scary at the same time. I found myself eager to learn, which was a good thing for me. My tutor, Grenville Davey, who won the Turner Prize in the 90s, was a great teacher and mentor to all his students. He helped me to grow as an artist and as a person. He was tough and gritty, but genuine and honest, making us question our integrity as artists. He was good at curating and passing on his wisdom to us, always willing to help us in anyway possible.
