About Gabriel Böhmer

 
 
  • Biography

    Originally from Zurich, Gabriel is an Edinburgh based artist interested in memory, dreams, and the absurd. 

    After leaving Boston and the consulting industry in 2011, he moved to Buenos Aires for two years, and began painting, writing, and making films. A successful funding campaign was run for his book 'Beetle Days,' for which he also painted the cover art. 

    Among other things, his work has recently been exhibited in association with Artfinder, featured at the Skepto International Film Festival, in the Herald Scotland, and in Dezeen magazine.

    When not in the studio, Gabriel sings growly songs with Ber from their album Fort GrowingGabriel's book of paintings 'Tomorrow I'll Go Outside,' is now available through Blurb.

    Event: On The Edge

    Dates: July 3, 2017 - July 9, 2017

    Venue: RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, Hampton Court Palace

    Supporting Frederic Whyte's garden entitled 'On The Edge' with 3 pieces in the exhibition garden, and 18 pieces outside.

    Event: In A Room

    Dates: March 4, 2017 - March 25, 2017

    Venue: The Edinburgh Gallery, Edinburgh UK

    Gabriel Böhmer will be completing his 6-month residency at the Edinburgh Gallery by leading a final showing. This will be his largest exhibition at the Gallery to date, and will include work from his animated short film, which was recently featured in Dezeen.
    His pieces draw on fleeting thoughts to build a narrative of the subconscious. Using minimal imagery and writing his work is often humorous, sometimes tragic, and always approaching the absurd.
    ‘In A Room’ explores a set of rotating characters in unusual situations. The collection playfully jumps between existential questions, and ordinary occurrences. While one piece focuses on music being played too loudly, another wanders off and considers nihilistic bears. These painted tales always play out in the confines of a single room, where surreal moments are meditated upon and opinions formed. By giving phenomenal and mundane thoughts equal weight, we are offered a complete record of internal discourse.
