On May 24-25-26-27-28, between 4 pm and 8 pm, the residencies' space will be open to the public for the Open Studio of the artist Gabrielle Reeves, who will present the series of paintings produced during her one-month stay in Lisbon.
The series of works on display oscillates between moments of production in the studio and on location drawings and paintings . While working outdoors allows the artist to explore a new environment, the practice in the studio is often based on the impressions developed while working outdoors.
Although there is a wide variety of subjects, all works are connected by a common thematic thread: the concept of home. Originally from Wyoming and based in Turkey for a decade, Gabrielle Reeves explores nostalgia for roots and how emigrating changes one's sense of self.
