Maria Geszler-Garzuly, Hungary

 For the 80th Birthday

Marianne Heller Heidelberg is showing the exhibition, Meteorites and Other Poems in November 2021. The exhibition was conceived and planned for the 80th birthday of an artist who enjoys respect and recognition worldwide, and it shows hand-picked recent works: large-scale porcelain pieces, non-representational forms - the Meteorites - and porcelain images, which in complex decor techniques and in delicate or strong colours as well as printing or decal techniques bear the poetically and intellectually unmistakable mark of Maria Geszler-Garzuly.

She was born in Hungary in 1941 into a family of musicians but decided herself on ceramics, later taking a degree in it. She says, "A genius whose uncanny sensitivity bursts into our lives like a meteorite changes our history and our destiny, causes deep wounds - or someone's talent and skills enters our life's path like a wonderful, gleaming gift. We do not understand them, these objects, these meteorites with their interstellar stardust, - we do not know where they came from, what messages and impressions they convey to us from other worlds. They rush over us, then crash on us - like incomprehensible and inexplicable talents, brilliant creative individuals ..." In her statement, she says, "Every day is a mystery, every person is an enigma, every story, our destiny is incomprehensible. My form appears in my clay and porcelain figures."
