Gabby is a NZ artist who has called Sydney home since 2003 after living in the UK for 14 years. You may be familiar with her still life images: flora and fauna viewed and grown in NSW Australia with more than a hint of chinoiserie.
By using allusion and symbolism, Gabby weaves stories into her work based on her experiences as trans-racial, Asian adoptee: joyful and chaotic assemblage of blooms and fruit displayed with a collection of ceramics from anywhere and everywhere but with a narrative that draws the viewer in for a second look. The result is a collection of pictures combining unexpected elements to create strangely familiar images. There are stories in each of her works that lift them from the purely decorative into a narrative piece.
