"To put it in the words of George Bernard Shaw: 'But you see and say: why? But I dream and say: why not?' Apply, scrape, paint over, glue, blow dry, print. I really love the artistic freedom to realize my paintings and I hope to please people's eyes and soul with my paintings."
Gabrielle Mutti made her first attempts to paint self-taught after she decided to live her dream.
After deciding to pursue her passion for art, Gabrielle Mutti became a self-taught artist. "When I start to paint abstractly," she explains "energy is released, color and form are not decided, chaos is everywhere, then first decisions are made."
The only control is the rough theme, the experience or inspiration of everyday life. "It's a constant repetition and reaction to what I feel and experience around me, the confidence in my intuition, my hands and my taste," explains Gabrielle.
Apply, scrape, paint over, glue, blow dry, form, print - that's what she calls absolute artistic freedom. Where chaos was before, everything is now in flux. However, the artist doesn't like to stick to a plan, and as a change, she loves portraiture and figurative painting. "Everything can change again...my way - my art."
