“It is in the quiet, white space of my studio that my graphic eye comes in. I look for pattern, repetition, negative spaces and form and these are springboards for new stories to emerge.” — Gabrielle Raaff
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".
