This piece is a landscape from a series of five large canvas paintings "River or Stream." The idea arrives from places that I have seen before. As I developed the work these pieces get transformed into a mixture of reality and fiction. The process has also got to do with the fluidity of the paint and always has the element "water" in it. PLEASE NOTE: This artwork will ship rolled in a tube. The photos depict the artwork when stretched.

Getting to Know Gabriela

Venezuelan born painter Gabriela Fernandez uses psychedelic colors to create fantastical landscape scenes. She applies mixed media in layers to produce rippling, swirling forms on each canvas. The mountains and valleys seen in Gabriela’s compositions are inspired by her travels and childhood in Venezuela. “Often it is the memory of an environment that forms the initial idea behind the work,” says Gabriela. Building from her memories, Gabriela also relies heavily on her imagination to complete a landscape. The artist currently resides in Spain where she enjoys being near the beach.
