Gabriel Vormstein

Gabriel Vormstein has been focusing on the theme of transience, futility, and temporality with his distinctive and acute visual language. He initiates his subject matters from reconsidering the traces of time or that of art movements throughout history that emerge and fade to question the established criteria in art and its materials. He mainly works with newspaper that is considered a ‘low,’ povera, and impermanent artistic material. He incorporates the process of covering the grids of information and advertisements inscribed on newspaper made of recycled paper with pencil and paint. Thus, the finalized paintings become layers of substances and a synthesis of diverse meanings.
