Sculpture in plastic, bronze, iron and plaster and wood

Ceres Gallery presents the sculpture of Gabrielle Rossmer, an artist who has been exploring the use of small-scale figures for the past 12 years. Rossmer hopes to achieve some of the same motion and emotional power she previously achieved with abstract constructions and large-scale installation work. In this show, Rossmer explores the affinities between dance and sculpture. Dance is body in motion, but it is also gesture. Sculpture is form in space that contains both gesture and motion. She has drawn inspiration specifically from Mark Morris' "L'Allegro, Il Penseroso, ed il Moderato", a modern dance based on the poetry of John Milton and the music of George Friedrich Handel. The choreographic complexity, the unexpectedness and the interdependence of music and movement speak to her in the same inner language she uses to think about and create sculpture. Morris has said he listens to music and 'makes stuff up'. Rossmer creates the individual pieces and then choreographs their dance in the same way.
