Gabriela Dellosso

United States

Gabriela Gonzalez Dellosso is a fine artist, known for her homage self-portraits and narrative paintings. She is a native New Yorker, of Cuban and Ecuadorian heritage. Her artistic roots can be found on both sides of her family.  Her maternal grandmother and great-grandfather were well respected and published poets in South America.  Gabriela’s father, studied painting and drawing in Cuba during the pre-Castro era.  As a child, she remembers trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with her father, where they used to study paintings together.

 

Gabriela’s themes mix figurative narratives, with contemporary psychology.  This combination offers viewers a unique cultural statement and interpretation.   Her versatility , yet singular vision has materialized itself in varied subjects such as clowns, brides and homage self-portraits.  Transformative elements involving her self-portraits have been said to have a “Cindy Sherman” twist.

 

Gabriela received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, including two solo exhibitions at The Butler Institute of American Art in 2006 and 2016.  Her work can be found in many permanent museum collections.   She is represented by the Harmon-Meek gallery in Naples, FL.
