The Computer Diaries
Since she discovered the Paint software, around the beginning of this century, Gabriëlla sometimes uses her computer as an artistic diary, as a part of the Virtual World series.
Gabriëlla: “There’s stuff you can’t do in real life. For instance: you don’t need brushes, you don’t need unhealthy sprays. You can always change background colors in a split second. Copy or delete things, duplicate details or patterns, inverse the painting, and so on.”
Gabriëlla always transforms feelings and atmospheres into colors. Just like her Virtual World paintings it’s her way to save daily experiences and memories, from Osama Bin Laden till the sadness of her cat that recently died.
Gabriëlla: “It’s weird. When i look at all my computer works, it feels like going to a therapist. It’s like looking at the person i used to be, a collection of my characteristics.”
Just like her real paintings, Gabriëlla uses icons to tell her story.
