Gabriela Román

Artexpo New York 2024

April 4 – 7, 2024

My work is a reflection of the world around me, drawing inspiration from the beauty of nature, sunsets, the sky, and the sea. In my abstract paintings I aim to capture the freedom and peace that I feel when immersed in the splendor of landscapes. However, my artistic journey extends beyond the serene vistas. Through my portraits, I embark on a journey into the essence of the soul, unveiling the depths of a person’s being through their eyes and facial expressions. I employ a glowing color palette and expressive brushstrokes to infuse emotional intensity into a person’s gaze, sometimes focusing solely on a portion of the subject’s face. While each portrait reveals a person’s unique cultural and social makeup it also sheds light on the universal human experience, awakening a powerful feeling of recognition within the viewer. My work serves as a catalyst for personal and social reflection, inspiring a unifying sense of harmony across humanity’s barriers and complexities.
