The beauty and exquisite gowns opposed with the harshness and creativity of metal sculpture. These works provoke and inform the viewer of their own life experiences, personal beliefs and values.
Gabriele often works with steel. His approach is intuitive mainly concerned with essential form and movement. He works quickly, changing and adjusting the construction to achieve the desired result.
