Ferruccio Gard is one of the pioneers and leading artist representatives of the Neo-Constructivist art, Programmed Art and Optical Art, which he has practiced since 1969. He is considered to be a master of colour, in his painting Gard creates original formal and compositional solutions of forms and colours. Exploring the geometric composition with chromatic and special themes Gards clasps the complexity of black and white and the extremes of the tonal scale of colours.
Gard's work have been the subject of many writers, including Piero Dorazio and Virgilio Guidi, as well as renowned poets art art curators such as Jorge Amado, Andrea Zanzotto and Paolo Ruffilli.
For thirty years (1978-2008) Gard has participated to many solo and group exhibitions with the art group focused on Neo-Constructivist and Knetic art called "Verifica 8 + 1", founded in Venice-Mestre in Italy by painter Sara Campesan in 1978.
In the eighties Gard continued his research on the psychology of visual perception and the theory of form and on the relationships between light, space and chromatism, in 1987 he explored the abstractionism of the new geometry and, in the nineties he investigated the abstract-informal painting.
Gard has participated in more than 150 solo exhibitions in many cities around the world including Beijing, New York, Prague, Brussels, Salzburg and Lienz (Osterreich), Remagen and Saarlouis in Germany, Cordoba in Argentina, Venice, Rome, Florence, Milan, Verona, Padua, Turin, Bergamo, Cortina d'Ampezzo. The artist was involved in seven editions of the Venice Biennale of Art and at the 11th National Rome Quadriennale.

Negli anni ’80 l’artista continua la sua ricerca sulla psicologia della percezione visuale, la teoria della forma e le relazioni tra luce, spazio e cromatismo. Tra la fine degli anni ’80 e gli anni ’90, inoltre, esplora l’Astrattismo geometrico e la pittura Astratto-Informale.
