Gabriela Spector

Gabriela Spector. Biography


I was born in 1968 in TucumĂĄn, a city in the north of Argentina.

I earned my degree in Fine Arts from the National University of TucumĂĄn.

From 1990 to 1991 I was employed a san assistant in the drawing atelier.

After graduation I won a scholarship and relocated to Italy to specialize in sculpture.

In Milan, I worked in the artistic Foundry Battaglia, using the bronze fusion technique.

Simultaneously, I attended the academy of Fine Arts of Brera.

I furthered my studies over a period of two years at the academy of Fine arts of Carrara, where I specialized in marble.

Since 1995 I live and work in Ticino, Switzerland.



Work and projects


The principal theme of my art is the human figure.

I developed over several years the theme of pregnancy. The exhibit was entitled “The desire of maternity” at the hospital in Mendrisio, Switzerland.

We printed a catalogue of photographs and interviews with the models during 2002.

On the subject of travel migration and identity I used antique maps as a back round for paintings particularly vast in size.

The project, entitled “Maps” was presented in Italy, Switzerland, France and Argentina.
