On the run 2014

July 17, 2016 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

Because I am fascinated by Goya’s work, who in his engravings and his black paintings was largely critical of his contemporaries, picturing memories, testimonials of the war between Spain and France in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, I have chosen to establish parallels with my own time.

Bird show

July 4, 2016 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

My diary can be seen as a study of reality in the virtual track. My images are not straightforward to read, but their meaning is revealed between the lines, like a child trauma drawings reveal the reality, often disguised. A multiple filters to a residue.

Poetic Wild 2016

June 19, 2016 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

When you sit gazing into the distance, vacantly, contemplatively, lost within the environment, you come to realize how the landscape assumes the shape of a living presence, how its colours unfold in delicate and refined nuances, how the sun lights the surface of the waters in rose and golden hues, and fleeting emerald brightness’s reflect their sparkles in the bursting ripples.


Fantomes 2016

June 14, 2016 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

Following on from my fascination(enthralled) by the work of Goya: who in his graphics and in  his black paintings especially,  gives critical commentary about his time enjoyed,  memories, testimonies of the war between Spain and France in the 18e and 19e century and the mentality of intolerance in that time..

Remenbering my parents November 01 2015

May 29, 2016 - Gabriëlla Cleuren

Perhaps, this atmosphere was the foundation for my art, reconstructing what I experienced, felt, observed, dreamt, in short, writing down memories in my own pictoral language using only parts of the reality, fragments of memory merged into a free composition and form, sometimes with a dividing line in between.


Reader’s Diary: ‘Women of Abstract Expressionism’

May 29, 2016 - Barry Schwabsky | Hyperallergic

I won’t be getting to Denver to see the exhibition Women of Abstract Expressionism, curated by Gwen F. Chanzit, and chances are I won’t be getting to Charlotte or Palm Springs to see its subsequent iterations; with luck, I just might make it to London where the show will end its tour in the summer of 2017.

No greater contrast can possibly be imagined than with the way in which painters, such as Goya, Ensor, Karel Appel and Gabriëlla Cleuren offer us their images, their forms, their color touches and subtle nuances – in brief, their artistic gestures. What is true of Goya’s Desastres de la Guerra, certainly also holds for Gabriëlla Cleuren’s sublime series...
