Gabriela Giroletti: Breezy

Painter Gabriela Giroletti gives insight into her motivations, artistic influences, and techniques, on the occasion of her solo exhibition Breezy at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London in 2021.

Studio KIND. presents: 'At Once and a Touch Away' by Gabriela Giroletti

Gabriela Giroletti talks to us about her new body of work, available to visit at Studio KIND. in Braunton or as a virtual exhibition at Studio KIND. is a new artist-led contemporary gallery, project space and studios, located in the heart of North Devon. Founded as a community interest company in 2020, Studio KIND. presents the work of both local and national, early-career and established artists through an ambitious and diverse programme of exhibitions and events, curated to excite imaginations, challenge perceptions and create connections. Studio KIND. is run by Richard Gregory and Laura Porter. Gabriela Giroletti is a Brazilian-born painter living and working in London. Through her impasto painting style, Gabriela is developing a unique symbolic glossary, characterised by the constant tension between the pictorial and human presence - the imagined and the material. Existing somewhere between abstract and figurative, painting and drawing, micro and macro, body and nature, still life and landscape, simple and complex, her work performs a push and pull game between body and mind; making and thinking.
