GABRIELE VIGORELLIArtist Profile
To experience Gabriele Vigorelli’s work is to step inside a man’s dreams. Vibrant colors, abstracted figures and complex geometric arrangements, come to life in the artist’s exemplary large-scale canvases. Vigorelli’s paintings are a transcendent orbit, where spirit meets substance. Painting since his early childhood, the Milan-native has long been stimulated by nature and his own deep-seated spirituality.
Vigorelli’s exposure as a young man to the ancient masters and modern luminaries of are masterfully injected into his work.
“I paint the wonder of life. My heart comes through in the colors, forms and shape,” says Vigorelli, who moved to New York in 1987, where he continues to reside today. “In my work, I try to unlock the mysteries of the subconscious, inner-outer universe, the unknown – It is
the one true infinite source of inspiration.”
Vigorelli’s paintings capture the wildness of illusory dreams and fantasy. His universe is deep and compelling, intricate and vast. Many of his paintings are executed on delicate, sheer cloth, evoking the
temporal and fragile nature of life and the beauty in it. The broader picture paints a peaceful, elegant and mystical setting. The viewer becomes a member of Vigorelli’s utopian fantasies.
Vigorelli has lived and worked throughout Italy, the North East United States and Mexico. Today, his studio is based in Washington Square, in New York City.
