Gabriel Lester

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Galerie Fons Welters

Gabriel Lester’s (NL, 1972) artwork, films and installations originate from a desire to tell stories and construct environments that support these stories or propose their own narrative interpretation. His artworks are typified as cinematographic, without necessarily employing film or video. Like cinema, Lester’s practice has come to embrace all imaginable media and occupy both time and space. The artworks propose a tension span and are either implicitly narrative, explicitly visual or both at once.
 
Gabriel Lester lives and works in Amsterdam. Lester went to the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunst, Amsterdam. Recent solo exhibitions include Groninger Museum, The Netherlands; CAC Vilnius, Lithuania; De Appel arts centre, Amsterdam; Bonner Kunstverein, Germany.
