Fallow to Fertile: new works by Susanna Gallisdorfer
In the artist's own words:
"Simply put, I am an aging and alive woman engaged in the making of art and the writing of poetry. I have learned when to open the gates and when to shut them. I received encouragement from Morris Graves statement, “learn when to put the brush down”. When this wisdom arrives, the season of fallow follows. The act of creating rests under a growing acceptance of the unknown and a settling silence. This fallow period lasted almost 4 years for me.
Now new work has arrived and unlike any of my previous work, yet in some way related. It is another beginning. It makes me happy. I have no idea where it will lead me. As everything is growing upward and outward, spring is the best season to introduce this new work. And no better place to meet then at The Garden Gate."
