STATEMENT

“If we were not all so interested in ourselves, life would be so uninteresting that none of us would be able to endure it.”—Arthur Schopenhauer 

These are personal paintings that are both a reference to the decorative floral works that I made for decades (as my alter ego Gabriela), and also a way for me to convey my disillusionment with the fairytale of happiness as I get older. I’ve been painting pixelated bouquets and other joyful things which are kind of like little self portraits about creative struggle, self-doubt, and mood. Please enjoy this photo of me at Driftwood Beach.
