The first artist that caught my attention during the ArtParis fair, in the stand of Thessa Herold Gallery. This is the first time i saw her work and was immediately hynoptised.
Here is what her website said about her:
A native of Poland, the artist graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow in 1975, she also studied at Centre Contemporain de Gravure in Geneva, Switzerland.From 1975 to 1983 Gabriela Morawetz resided in Venezuela , since 1983 she lives and works in Paris.

Voyage de noces (2008)

When you look her series before 2008, you feel that she is an artist who comes in maturity rather late. But she did an impressive video installation in 2007 for the Biwako Biennale in Japan.
