Historical Context:
"I make paintings that aim to embrace crafts and traditions as a way to challenge capitalist normativity and colonial ideals. I explore by subjectivity through domesticity, solitude, and self-awareness. My many meditations on everyday themes, such as trees or meals, reflects my deep belief in "naivete" as an antidote to hyper-masculine paradigms. I want my paintings to embrace non-linear and feminine qualities such as fluctuation and nuance. Above all, I want them to embrace humility and empathy; key components to listening and therefore, key components to learning." - Gabrielle Schaub
