Unknown territory

 03. 06. 2016 – 16. 06. 2016

Gabrielle Schaffartzik was born in 1964 in Bremen, Germany. She studied at the University of Gottingen, Germany, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland. She studied Byzantine iconography in various studios in Russia, France and Austria. She is a member of the German Federal Association of visual artists as well as GEDOK-German Association of Women Artists.

She has participated in international art colonies in many countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, India, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Turkey. In 2015 she was granted a 6-week artistic stay in Istanbul, Turkey. Her works can be found in public and private collections in Germany and abroad.

The exhibition contains a selection of paintings made in oil on canvas from her latest cycle called “Terra Incognita”, a term that refers to artistic focus on landscapes that are not topographically determined. Gabriele’s tendency is to go a little further from the representative answers in order to create new, more or less abstract spaces in personal dialogue between associations, memories, emotions, quotes and symbols, colors, lines, ornaments and patterns.
