and still with art ….
Realism and Abstraction – these two terms form short-term, even though recurring marginal phenomena within their absolution in the artwork of Gabel. His magnum opus is located between two poles.
In Intervals trace the change from “resting realism” to highly charged creative abstraction. Gabel sees himself with these oppositional method of working in a natural causality, which bases its art historical roots not only in the past century.
Many of his artwork are an intensive examination of literature, history and philosophy, scooping inter alia from ancient mythology, Celtic history, Plato’s writings, Goethe’s Faust, expressed in various forms of drawings and paintings. His themes are very extensive and universal, often creating an ambiguity, accompanied with a very subtle irony.
The human figure, sometimes only line like, occasionally realistic or surrealistic, then again very abstracted, can be found quite often in Gabel’s artwork. Even nature has inspired Gabel to multifaceted imagery.
The infinite sphere of colours, the freshness, and the composition are the unmistakable signature of this extraordinary artist who lets the viewer to immerse anew in a wonderful and exciting ‡ relaxing world of experience.
This exhibition is a journey through the life work of Gerhard Gabel.
