Gabriele Bitter

Gabriele has exhibited her work in southern California as well as in Germany and just recently showed her work at the Angel Orensanz Foundation in Long Island, NY, as well as the Mkrtchyan Gallery in Glendale, Sulkin/Secant Gallery at Bergamont Station in Santa Monica, Art 4 All People Gallery in Malibu and at the Orange County Center of Contemporary Art in Santa Ana. Her art work was part of the “Project 36” with Theatre Arts West as well as the Playwrights and Artists Series II.

Gabriele’s work has an identifiable look with its strong colors and textures. Many of her compositions are anchored with geometric shapes and lines which can create both balance and tension. She often incorporates charcoal or chalk as drawing elements. Texture is a very important element in her work.

Recently she started to incorporate new and old printmaking techniques which she enjoys tremendously. Mono-prints, intaglio and linocut have become an intricate part of her work.

Raised in Europe, Gabriele was influenced by many different painting styles. When she moved to the Unites States she enrolled in many art classes and attended a private art school in Irvine. She has continued taking classes and workshops whenever she can find the time.

She is represented by the Copperwood Gallery in Orange and the Lark Gallery in Los Angeles.
