FIND A WORD FOR IT

Gabriel propose a different angle of political iconography, using pictorial symbols to convey meaning, wondering “how political power can build such representations? What is the weight of words in building memories and images?

GENESIS  (85 x 120 cm | Stretched Canvas)

Genesis of a long artistic and thoughtful journey. First work of this series back in 2011 when I felt the call to capture my collection of press headlines onto a canvas, not really sure of what would be the result...

After a 10 years of a personal journey in the history of Photojournalism, Gabriel brought "Find a Word for it" as a reflection on major societal topics as Power & Politics, Sex, Business, Nations, Environment, Finance & Economics... and their relations to these icons that Media create along the time. Gabriel tries to understand how Media build in our minds these familiar faces and all the ideas related to them. He finally question this process trying to establish whether the character itself or the media create these icons ?

This project is a dive into lexical fields sometime contradictory, reflecting a type of social and media schizophrenia, finally inviting the spectator to review and assess his approach, leaving him the choice to stick to a personal vision.
