Born in 1988 in a small village outside of New York , Gabrielle Meyerowitz has always found solace in color and line , and has understood it as her medium . She studied painting and drawing in New York before embarking on a couple of long-term assistantships , and then studies in Paris.
It was during this time she found an old suitcase which she dubbed her portable home or studio ; “Valise” , which then became a foundational principle in the collaboration , PROJET VALISE , as well as inspired her Scroll Series . Since then she has continued her work through international residencies . Her work is interactive , site-specific , with contents of writing and sound . Always a direct response to the particularities of physical space , the end result is an abstraction.
