A solo Modern Batik exhibition by artist Gabrielle Lasporte
In her 3rd Modern Batik series, Gabrielle continues her visual exploration of the human experience by delving into water. Water, essential for human survival, widely signifies healing and regeneration. Through this collection of work, Gabrielle explores the beauty of this natural force as a mirror for our lives.
As we live each day, emotions influence our growth through highs and lows. Just like the movement of water and the cycles of waves caused by external forces, we are destined to live this cycle over and over again. The many layers of dyes within each piece provide another metaphor for the layers of emotions, realizing how embracing them is ultimately our empowerment.
Gabrielle’s work has been shown at notable events including the Manifesto Festival Art Exhibit, Queen West Art Crawl, and Toronto Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. In 2012-13, Gabrielle was commissioned to complete three sea-themed pieces for private collectors. Her work on these pieces further inspired her to explore water as a theme in her development as a Modern Batik artist. She was the first batik artist to participate in The Artist Project, a contemporary art fair in Toronto, where she will be returning in February 2015 to present her latest collection.
Her previous series ” Life Flow” was an abstract visual representation of the life cycle through colour and shapes. Through good or bad, life will always flow to its ultimately destiny.
Opening Preview – February 17, 2015
The Artist Project – February 19 – 23 (Booth 536)
Another first for me as an artist! The Artist Project was a great experience this past weekend and got to talk to many people about the art of batik and my technique. I also really liked making connections with fellow artists and talking about their work. Looking forward to many new things to come! g.

I will be taking part in a group show on October 15, 2013 as part of the Semaine Kreyol organized by Le Centre Francophone and Perle Noire Entertainment. 6pm located at Galerie Céline-Allard – 20, Lower Spadina
Pour la première fois, le Centre francophone de Toronto et PERLE NOIRE Entertainment, en partenariat avec Sun Media s’associent pour l’organisation d’une semaine d’événements dédiés à la culture créole, du 15 au 19 octobre 2013.
Pour commencer les festivités, le Centre francophone et Perle Noire vous invite à vous rendre à la galerie Céline-Allard pour le vernissage d’une exposition de trois artistes visuels d’inspiration créole (Jean-Salomon André, Jimmy Chiale et Gabrielle Lasporte).
À cette occasion le public pourra également entrer de plein pied dans la culture créole grâce à l’organisation d’une dégusation de produits locaux (plats cuisinés et boissons exotiques). Afin de parfaire l’ambiance des îles un guitariste sera par ailleurs chargé d’assurer le plaisir de vos oreilles. Le buffet sera assuré par le traiteur Manjé Kreyol.
