Gabriele Grones
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Greenpoint

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Gabriele Grones Artist statement Painting is a process of appropriation of knowledge. I consider the painting as a tool that allows me to investigate subjects and themes that belong to the range of my interests. Through a very detailed painting process in oil on canvas I intend to inquire deeply into the subjects, observing and giving shape to every single detail that can render the essence of my vision, filtered through my pictorial sensibility. In my portraits my aim is to detect faces as if they were emotional maps of the past records and feelings of the person. Traces of experiences and signs of the relationship with the environs emerge on the surface of the portraits. The faces are thoroughly painted, often represented outside a specific context, isolated from the contingency of time and pursuing a metaphysical condition. There is no need for further information, the figure seems crystallized, isolated to become an iconic image.
