About Gabriele Herzog
Swiss artist Gabriele Herzog’s paintings might appear as minimalist and pared-down abstractions upon first glance. The colour palette is reduced in spectrum in any one canvas, and muted in tone, but the result is anything but simplified. In effect Herzog’s compositions are complex reflections of the artist’s internal ruminations. Her instinctive line-work reflects her fluency with her medium and reveals a confidence that perhaps stems from her training as an illustrator.
