Gabriel Hartley

Gabriel Hartley’s work and Crimping in particular refer to the act of folding and suggests the idea of thoughts that wind around themselves, but also an ability, a way of thinking that holds a dialogue with tradition and culture. Thus the paintings are born from freely traced signs that amalgamate, forming clots of coloured material arranged on the surface around centres of visual tension, or alluding to an expansion beyond the edge of the canvas.
Both sculpture and painting arise from a conception of art where the figures of the world and its objects move between abstraction and figurative, leaving free traces of the indeterminate in space or on the painted surface.
