My name is Gabriela Handal and I am a draughtsman, whose medium of artistic expression is drawing with graphite or charcoal over paper.
My work is driven by the human body as a result of Mother Nature's wisdom, and She makes no mistakes and wastes no space.
The images I make are worship and meditation of Mother Nature.
In each new depiction I search for the shapes and rhythms we are made of, then thoughtfully sculpt through a pointy pencil, and carefully orchestrate value throughout the rises and falls of skin and change in tissue.
The representations I produce are realistic, studious and adoring. By gazing upon them, I hope the viewer will remember the miracle of the human body into which they were born.
