Gabriela Spector, an artist with a prevailing figurative vocation, brings in her sculptures emotions, gestures and memories, deeply linked to her personal experiences.
Her artistic activity develops into two distinctive search lines – one sculptural using plaster, marble and bronze and the other one pictorial , giving to both of them the same attention to the intimacy of the human figure.
Body and motherhood are the main subjects in her project “Voglia di pancia” molds of pregnant women representing the desire of maternity, accomplished in 2002 with an exhibition and a book which tells the experiences of the women involved in it.
Instead, the Mappe della Memoria (memory maps) and Madretierra (Mother Earth) projects are dedicated to migration and journey, two topics deeply related to the “wandering” family tradition. The idea originated with the discovery of a substantial number of geographical maps. Maps which the artist used and transformed to give life to sculptural and pictorial works, where the world becomes background and canvas on which tell, again, the tangle of mankind intimate maps, the hidden landscapes of its soul.
Key subjects also for the most recent Poesia quotidiana (“daily poetry”) sculptorial cycle.
The artist has also done several commissioned works, of medium and big sizes and constantly works on the development of new projects.
