Verba

Uniquely straddling the doctrines of Graffiti, Post Modernism and Arte Povera,

Gabriel Dubois’ practice is born out of an innate desire to express and inscribe his heterogeneous life experiences through the formal language of abstraction.
A penchant curiosity for foreign affiliations has lead to international artistic endeavours, promoting a visual practice informed by multiple imprints, perspectives and traditions.

Dubois operates primarily as an abstract painter, employing hard-edge gestural components within an absorbing playing-field of deft iconography. Utilizing sign painting mechanisms to create contemporary calligraphic forms he emphasizes the impact of urbanity through a recognizable artistic authorship. In search of a spiritual architecture potentially infinite in interpretation, Gabriel attempts to convey the intricacies of his own personal geography. Site-specific works, structural installations, sculptures and collage based imagery act as formal counterpoints to his painted compositions.
