Description
Elizabeth de Gebele Ginno explores shape and movement in this early, Abstract etching of a fortune teller. Ginno‚Äôs style ran the gamut in genres, touching on Realism, Abstract Expressionism, non-representational Abstraction, Cubism, and more, and the connecting thread of strength lay in her composition. Echoes of the design sensibilities of the Bauhaus are evident in her use of strong contrasts and stylized shapes. Here, the face of the fortune teller is central to the piece and the whirling, multi-dimensional world around her projects an air of mystery.
