Gabrielle Tsounis Registre
As an artist, I am motivated by a compelling drive to create the kind of art which is at
once spontaneous and methodical. Pursuing the urgency of art allows me to be innovative and provides me with a sense of purpose in my work. My goal is to provoke thought in the viewer, with the hope that my art can be a catalyst for positive change and increased awareness in others and in myself. My artwork is inspired by my perceptions of the world around me and influenced by my own thoughts, ideas, and visions. Travel leads me to paint the places I have visited, making travel and art interconnected. My world view alters after every journey, inspiring me to
return to my work with renewed enthusiasm and determination.
“Down To Earth”
This body of work was inspired by the Earth’s natural elements, such as the colors
textures and layers. From a birds eye view I wanted to depict Nature as Art. I am in love with Aerial views of the world while flying. My work is a reflection of my photos I have taken with me during my travels from my window seat. With various environmental issues, oil spills, and the controversy surrounding the recent pipeline plan, it has brought my attention to create these
paintings of the land. The Human Species are part of the land, and we live in a beautiful place. I wish viewers to be reminded that not only my paintings is art, but also the Natural world.
