Gabriela Azar Schreiner is an Argentinian painter based in Melbourne. Her colourful, large-scale abstract canvases are held in private and corporate collections in Australia as well as internationally.
Her compositions are instantly noticeable for their captivating colour palette and dynamic brushstrokes. Infused with unmistakable presence and energy, they light up every room in which they are displayed.
A self-taught artist, Azar Schreiner embraces a passionate, intuitive approach to painting. Rather than subscribing to rigid techniques, she lets colours and emotions guide her creative process. The resulting paintings easily capture the imagination through whirlwinds of colour and rich texture: layers of soft plum and bright pink blend in with lush paint swirls to evoke a sense of uplifting joy, while other scenes shine through deep fuchsia and electric blue, suggesting worlds of intense emotions.
Azar Schreiner views painting as sheer passion and feeling. Through her process she doesn’t seek to depict a set idea or subject, but instead lets scenes and dynamic movement emerge organically. Her intrinsic ability to express herself visually is evident in the wide range of emotions she conveys with her canvases. Whether through soft swathes of colour, or paint applied so thick it retains its original gloss, the works take on an emotional power that is at times hectic and dramatic, and other times flowing and expressive.
Barely contained to the confines of the canvas, Azar Schreiner’s paintings are works that impact viewers on both physical and emotional levels.
