Gail Crosman Moore
Gail Crosman Moore is an artist being called to illustrate the exceptional phases of life through metaphor; the life cycle of a seedpod. Pods house seeds and hidden potential. Seeds emerge into life, meant to reproduce. Life fades, decay takes the husk back to earth.
Disparate materials are used to share surface, to highlight comparisons like matte and shiny, hot and cold, big and little, soft and hard. Glass, metal, wool, paper, resin are all featured.
Although Gail's work has spanned many different fields and materials, a lifelong obsession with the essential, ancient seed pod has informed her work in all media. Whether she is painting, hammering, folding, sewing, or working in fire, it doesn't matter what materials are in her hands- it's certain that the varied forms of the Pod, the vessel of life, will emerge.
