Gabrielle Benot

GABRIELLE BENOT / EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER

Gabrielle Benot was born in Latvia, and grew up in Denmark. From an early age Gabrielle started sketching, drawing and produced impressionistic sculptures, working with her grandfather who was a self-taught painter. Influenced by Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter, Joan Brown, Willem De Kooning, Jean Paul Riopelle and others she takes an interest in partial figurative representation, reducing the subject matter to simplistic elements in her works. Her works are powerful and speak to the viewer, having energy and movement. Watching her paint is like a performance, reflecting her passion, as abstract forms evolve into the universe as she sees it—a world on canvas, a living art. Gabrielle graduated from the Royal Fashion Academy ( Margrethe Skolen) in Copenhagen, where she studied fashion design.
