“I love Abstract because although the painting doesn’t change you can see something different every time you look at it. In abstract art you’re allowed to, you’re meant to, interact with the art and together painting and viewer create a feeling. It’s a different experience for everyone and often for the same viewer when they return to the painting at another time, in another frame of mind, a different person than they were when they looked at it last.”
As a Fine Arts major at York University and the University of Toronto Gabrielle studied Dance, Theatre and Film. She taught and danced professionally, appeared on the stage and screen and has had over one hundred hours of television writing produced and broadcast in Canada, the United States and throughout the rest of the world. Even so the form of creative expression that makes Gabrielle come most fully alive is painting.
The oversize, raw, highly textured abstract canvasses that Gabrielle paints on the floor using large tools are infused with her unbridled passion for Nature. Energy and emotion explode on her canvasses with small respites of breathing space lain in.
