There is a faint line that exists between the conscious and the unconscious. It instigates an energy in each of us that stimulates our awareness and though invisible, this internal verve is what determines how one understands everything around them. This belief is the foundation of my ideas and my work, which compels the viewer to focus on the present. It creates a space for imagination to mature and to kindle the silent inner force that inspires the viewer’s awareness. The mind is left free to welcome a sublime sense, whether of serenity or euphoria, where an individual can walk away with an altered perception of life and matter.
Giselle Rosenthal studied sculpture at Syracuse University. Her most recent work explores the human body on a cellular level. She has a strong interest in the physical repetition of materials and forms as a way to create biomorphic structures that exhibit a seductive intensification. These forms are arranged to mimic the appearance and movement of growth. These small pieces add up to suggestive sculptural visions, which challenge the viewer to encounter imaginary situations that can only exist as the product of an unchecked imagination.
