ARTIST'S STATEMENT

GISE TRAUTTMANSDORFF

Gise is an artist working out of her Hamilton area studio. She draws inspiration at every waking moment from her surroundings. Gise manipulates space and form through composition and explores the poetic relationship between light and shadow and its motion in time. Texture and colour and fragility and coarseness are juxtaposed. Gise has an appreciation for weathered, aged surfaces and more conceptually a desire to create a sense of memory through them. Some of her assemblages are combinations of clay and found materials; the resulting effect allows each piece to reveal the history of its process and is intended to evoke a sense of discovery.
       Gise’s work can be found in collections in Canada, the U.S., Europe, South Africa and Japan.
