Review by Bill Snyder in the October 2004 issue of Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine:

Sosin Gallery
Georgette Sosin's art has an an expansive nature. It's a sense that the works are alive, stretching to break out of their frames and connect with one another as a single continuous composition.
Though she's been painting and sculpting since the mid-1950s, Sosin recently has been combining varying mixes of acrylics, pastels, ink, and Japanese rice paper to blend imagery of the cosmos with the rich textures, saturated colors and abstractions of bones. Sosin's combination of bones and planets makes sense both compositionally and philosophically.
" The bones are a symbol of a life that's already returned to energy," she says. "There's a spiritual aspect to it. The body is transformed to energy, and that energy is a positive force. It makes me very conscious of the oneness of our life on the planet and the cosmos. We're not separate from the sun, the moon, and the galaxies. That, to me, is sacred."

SPOTLIGHT BY MARY ABBE
The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Sunday, October 3, 2004
Celebrating the Universe
OPENS TODAY:
Minneapolis' Georgette Sosin finds inspiration for her stately paintings of cosmic forces in new scientific theories and discoveries. She transforms relics of ancient times – fossils, rocks, shells, bones – into symbols with intensely personal resonance and turns to physics, biology and astronomy for fresh ideas. Her meticulously rendered images feature moons and whirlwinds, planets rolling through the heavens like celestial bowling balls, and ghostly figures such as the ' Moon Juggler' in this whimsical design. Her new show includes triptychs celebrating sacred visions. (Reception 1-5 p.m. today, free. Sosin Studio Gallery, 1231 Washington St. NE., and 13th Av. NE., Mpls. Through Oct. 30, free. 612-378-0581.)
