About the Artist

File 83212

Gabrielle Raaff (b. 1970) is a Cape Town, South Africa-based painter who explores figurative and architectural forms within the urban landscape. Working with the ephemeral qualities of watercolor and ink, her diluted pigments abstract her figures into studies of light and dark wandering across her paper landscape. While existing outside a specific place or time,Gabrielle’s minimalist compositions evoke a sense of both "everywhere" and "nowhere".
