Gabriela Spector

Sculptor and painter. Argentine-Swiss artist.
She was born in the north of Argentina, where she studied for six years at the University of Tucumán, Facultad de Bellas Artes. After completing her studies in fine arts in Argentina, she attended the Carrara Academy and perfected her skills in marble processing. Subsequently, she worked in a recognized art foundry in Milan, which enabled her to develop her knowledge of materials in a practical way.

For her sculptures she prefers bronze and terracotta. Her work often focuses on the intimacy of the human figure. For several years she has been working on body and maternity and in 2002 she presented the exhibition "Voglia di pancia". She has also created several works on the subject of travel, immigration and identity, first in bronze and later in paintings and other sculptures - a theme that she presented for the first time in 2007 with the exhibition Maps of Memory in the Sala delle Grasce, in Pietrasanta (Lucca), Italy.
She has exhibited in numerous museums and private galleries in Europe and South America, and her works are part of several public and private collections. In recent years she has created several monumental works in bronze. In Mendrisio she has a permanent exhibition space in the grounds of the church of San Sisinio in the canton of Ticino, where she has been living since 1994.
