Artist biography

Adam Gabriels was born in 1967. His clear fascination is man; the naked vulnerable human being. Who are we? The starting point for this is the face. The powerful brushstrokes and precise strokes reveal no obvious emotions, but insist on the viewer's full attention. The existential focal point of the works is an open encounter with man, and perhaps we can recognize ourselves in the inevitable, strong gaze of the nameless persons.

“I paint mostly with oil paints, but I also work with different techniques within drawing, ink drawing, watercolor and oil pastel. Also works as a bronze sculptor. Member of 'Arts and crafts along the Wadden Sea' and 'Sønderjyske Kunstnere'

I seek and always try to find myself in my art. My biggest fascination is man - face and body. I play with colors and shape. Finds expressions that provoke, move and ask questions: Is there another truth in man? What does it mean to be human? I do not believe in a particular philosophy or religion, but belong to myself - and my art! My greatest desire is to give something to the world that lasts forever. ” - Adam Gabriel
