This print was commissioned for the SNAPline issue, What Happens Next? SZ-See is short for Salzgittersee, a lake nearby where the artist grew up. Below is an excerpt where Gabriela talks about her work:
"The scenes on my woodcuts are based upon actual events. The various parts of a picture can be reconstructed by any of the following sources: my memory, online search engines, book illustrations, own photos, life drawing, found materials, conversations or imagination. Stylistically the entire art history may serve me as a book of samples. Once the knife cuts into the wood, it is irrevocable. The knife and the rigidity of the wood force my hand to operate in a certain manner. The plywood I use only allows a certain amount of detailing and I execute each picture in one single woodblock. These restrictions make it possible for me to develop the image. The woodcut is a visual medium of the past. Its original function as a carrier of information rather than a form of art—plays into the perception of the onlooker."
