Gabriele Cappelli Biography

Clean and powerful, Gabriele Cappelli's abstract geometric forms bring together a sense of classical aesthetic and a contemporary approach to colour and line. His artworks contain an inherent sense of balance in their proportion, form, and colour, distilling a universal aesthetic language into its purest form. Cappelli has always been interested in the dialogue between different disciplines, in both theory and technique his works encapsulate the harmony the artist has found between the past and present. He is able to recall historical artistic traditions through abstract and modernist shapes and textures, re-evoking and revitalising them by combining them with conceptual and visual proponents of contemporary art. Cappelli takes inspiration from architecture and urban planning but also from the structure of music, using these disciplines to inform the development of his works, creating a sense of order.

Gabriele Cappelli's use of pure, unadulterated oil paints lends richness to the combinations of soft and bold colours in his compositions. They are often layered with gold dust, thus adding to the intense paints. His paintings have a true smoothness to their surface, yet one can see the labour and patience of the artist in the brushstrokes upon closer inspection. The artist thus creates depth from the flatness of the canvas, asserting the materiality of the artwork itself. Sensation is expressed as the first step of a complex process.
