When I paint, “Gabriele Stewart says,”I am starting with line, adding color, layering color, scratching, using crayons, paste, sometimes newspaper, and whatever else is around.”
Experimenting with new ideas and materials is a major focus of Stewart’s work and that openness gives her canvases a vital energy. Her paintings offer an exhilarating mixture of spontaneity and control, creating a world in which both a sense of adventure and the steadying influence of the artist’s hand can be felt.
Stewart says that she often listens to music while painting, and there is a strongly musical feel to her images. Scratches and free-form lines swoop across her paintings, creating rhythms that are unpredictable, yet elegantly proportioned. The viewer’s eye is kept in constant motion, always drawn toward a new area of interest.
The artist’s approach to color and texture further develops that sense of contrast and discovery. She says that she likes to let her colors “compete against each other,” and striking color combinations animate all of her images. Equally impressive is the range of textures she employs—from rough patches of paint to light washes of pure color. Calling herself a “risk taker,” the artist successfully makes all of the daring contrasts in her paintings pay off.
Born and educated in Bern, Switzerland, came to the USA in 1974 to be with American husband. Mother of three adult children.

Gabriele Stewart’s acrylic and mixed media paintings comprise a sort of controlled commotion. Abstracted and instinctive, Stewart’s work explores visual ideas rather than narrative or technical concepts — and yet it is almost uncanny how emotive and formal the finished product becomes.
