DESCRIPTION

Symbolic art is one of the oldest records of human behavior. Gathering the Scattered, Richard Gabriele’s first exhibition with Fred Torres Gallery, demonstrates the evolution of symbols in his work from the past ten years.

With some paintings on loan from private collections, the exhibition includes a variety of drawings, watercolors and oil paintings in the shape of birds, figures and abstract forms. Gabriele’s interest in abstract painting began in 2013 when, “the underlying feeling of creativity became the subject.”

Gabriele said, “Symbolism is a mysterious language that allows me to say more than I can with words. Certain feelings are like familiar places in my soul and art is a way of finding the way back.”

Gabriele’s new exhibition, Gathering the Scattered, opens with a reception on March 12, 2015 from 6-9pm and runs through April 11. A catalog is available with an essay by Eminent Art Historian Peter Selz who founded the University of California Berkeley Art Museum and served as Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York from 1958-1965.
