Gabriele Beveridge

Gabriele Beveridge (b. 1985) is a London-based artist whose work constructs environments using an assemblage of found imagery and objects that create something familiar yet uncanny, removing the context with which they were origionally associated. Her work crosses the boundaries between different mediums creating something that isn’t a photograph, a painting, a sculpture, using materials that possess an inherent symbolic worth, as diverse as office screens, old picture magazines and spray paint. Using images from back-issues of Life magazine and aged advertisements, the young London-based artist employs a precise use of framing, propping and hanging that allows the images to sumptuously trip off the salvaged objects on which they rest. The result is an alluringly tactile interplay between found image and object that demonstrates a honed consciousness of the material quality of images and their power to interrupt the display of an object.
