Between 2002 and 2011, Gabrielle created a number of series that drew on the politics, patterns and even humour within our social environment. Each series unfolds like chapters in a book, telling stories of manipulation, historic oversight, censorship and political agendas. From acrylic to water colour and oil paint, her visual styles and materials were chosen to conceptually reflect or satirize the vernacular in which she engaged. The stories are generated from various locations of artistic residency, including Sydney, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
