Further pursuing this theme of mirroring, Gerrity has also drawn on the psychological phenomenon known as the "Venus Effect," which describes the belief most viewers have that the goddesses in famous Venus-and-mirror paintings—the most celebrated being Velazquez's Rokeby Venus—when in fact the angle of the mirror means the deity is actually peering at the viewer. The artist's work has been exhibited in many gallery shows and art fairs.
