Only art penetrates what pride, passion, intelligence and habit erect on all sides – the seeming realities of this world. There is another reality, the genuine one, which we lose sight of. This other reality is always sending us hints, which without art, we can’t receive. Proust calls these hints our “true impressions.” The true impressions, our persistent intuitions, will, without art, be hidden from us and we will be left with nothing but a ‘terminology for practical ends’ which we falsely call life.
— Saul Bellow
What if this year you gifted your father (or anyone you had wanted to thank for a long time) with a piece of art that allows for continuous glimpses into another reality ?
Lilac Times (Acrylic and Ink; 12x24; framed white, and ready to hang) is directly available through my website www.gerburggarmann.com or in my studio #S33 at the City Circle Industrial Complex (CCIC) on 1125 East Brookside Avenue, Indianapolis, this Saturday between 1pm and 5pm. Stop by and chat with the artist herself!
