Gabrielle Shannon- Statement/Bio

Artists Statement

There is a tangible, recognizable connective tissue that connects my work. From the vastness of the cosmos to the intricate branching patterns within each of our life-giving cells, I am drawn to the primordial spirals, organic structures and flow of nature

I attempt to capture the states and stages of the dynamic energy that surrounds and fills us, constantly shifting and transforming our universes, too small to understand and too vast to comprehend… and recognizing that the patterns of change are the only constant we have.

I am fascinated, in particular, with the liminal state: the stage of matter—no matter the scale—where massive dissolution of order occurs; where ambiguity and disorientation are the natural precursors to change. From this chaotic, fertile void, a fluid and malleable state occurs and births new order; new customs; new structures… each unique, yet universally familiar.


Artist Bio

I started my early art training at The Art Students' League in New York and  continued at the School of Visual Arts in New York, and Grove Arts in California. My passion for art extends well beyond painting. In early 1994, I co-founded “Urban Desires”... the first online art and culture magazine on the web. Urban Desires allowed me to explore and influence art in its many forms and won numerous awards and worldwide praise.

During this time I exhibited and curated, in places including, The Elga Wimmer Gallery; Thompson Street Gallery; and The Manhattan Children’s Museum. I also sat on the Board of Eyebeam Atelier, a Johnson & Johnson funded Arts Organization. At Eyebeam I was instrumental in creating  "Digital Daycamp," an after-school digital arts program working in conjunction with New York City Public High Schools

When my husbands business took us west to Colorado. I suffered a traumatic brain injury within the first week my family and I arrived in Boulder.  It wasn't until after that incident while healing that I decided to paint again, full time. It took a literal knock on the head to bring me clarity of how precious time is in our lives, and how much I want to create in the time I have left!

My work is shown in galleries internationally, online, collected privately and in the corporate and hospitality space. Corporate clients include Moden Inc., Storyvine Inc., Industry Denver, and Cultivate, Boulder. I love to do commission work whenever I can.
