Gabrielle Rish

My motivation for making art is to share what I feel is worth noticing and considering with others. What that might be shifts from project to project but I am particularly interested in the human-made, including manufactured goods and architecture.

My motivation for making art is to share what I feel is worth noticing and considering with others. I am particularly interested in the human-made, including mass-produced objects and architecture, and also the nuances of gesture. The theatrical architecture of the Treasury building steps amazes me. I wanted to see what would happen when two people passed each other on these steps, as strangers pass each other in public. My series, It Happened on the Steps, attempts to visualise the drama of these encounters.
