Below is Gabe's artist statement for the exhibit:
Although a formal education in Architecture was the starting point of my pursuits in painting and collage,my interests are rooted in creating artwork that speaks to both the past and present tense of our global culture. Inspiration is pulled from a cross-generational appreciation for the arts – from classical literature and world architecture to youth culture, primarily skateboarding and hip-hop. These pieces reflect my intention of informing and engaging an audience on cultural and historical issues that affect our world today.
