On Gersony´s canvas the surfaces move, bend, form soft relieves or open in impenetrable cavities, attractive and mysterious, seductive. As petals of big orchids the colorful curves advance and recede in a constant action of attraction and offer, repulse and escape, making them even more intriguing. The hot colors are given through touches which seem as fondling, with a sincere pleasure by the nuances and variations of the natural light, resembling to the velvet skin of the flowers. We do not see an abstract and intellectual color, but the sensual and rich material of the baroque painting. Through her refined colorist instinct, Gersony knows how to express her own interiority with great sincerity. She makes happen that the art of the brush is really something valuable, a way to extraordinarily contemplate our passions, our desires in the middle of the tumult she involves us.
The work is only a sign of this sincere and profound exercise, similar to an artisan's work that through the domain of his technique, performs an ideal in a constructed object. What matters is the capacity to communicate these sensations through the plain instruments of painting. Teach how to see the shapes of the things as signs of our own interior lives, as life is made of things, of objects. A great Latin poet wrote “Sunt lacrimae rerum”, “Tears of the things exist”. In Art, the shapes exist as life expression: the tears, happiness, the pleasure of the senses, time anguish. Gersony´s painting tells us all this. If the sincere look of the artist can perceive and transmit this idea, then “Tears of the things exist”. In Art, the shapes exist as life expression: the tears, happiness, the pleasure of the senses, time anguish. Gersony´s painting tells us all this. If the sincere look of the artist can perceive and transmit this idea, then it is worth the long hours spent in the studio, in front of the empty canvas; it is worth the humble art of the color. To reveal the tears and the secret life of the things, to hold our tears.
