Adam Gabriel (DK)

Adam Gabriel’s fascination is clearly with people; bare, vulnerable humans. Who are we? The starting point is the face. The powerful brushstrokes and precise lines reveal no obvious feelings, thus requiring viewer’s full attention. Works’ existential focal point is an open meeting with a human, offering an opportunity to perhaps recognize ourselves in the nameless person’s unavoidable and piercing gaze.

“My name is Adam Gabriel. I live and work in my studio in Hojer in Southern Jutland / DK. I studied at the Art Academy in Rome from 1984 to 1990. Even though I paint mainly with oil paints, I also work with other different techniques, such as drawing, ink drawing, watercolour painting or oil pastels. In addition, I also make bronze sculptures. I am a member of the associations ‘Arts and crafts along the Wadden Sea’ and ‘Sønderjyske Artists’.

I am always looking for and trying to find myself in my art. My biggest fascination is man – face and body. I play with colours and form. I look for expressions that provoke, move and ask questions: Is there another truth in mankind? What does it mean to be human? I do not believe in a specific philosophy or religion, but I belong to myself – and my art! My greatest wish is to give the world something that would last forever.”
