Gabriëlle van de Laak’s versatile oeuvre comprises paintings, work on paper, glass and textile works.

She finds her main inspiration in structures assembled or disassembled, built or demolished, those made by man and those made by nature. The immediacy of the painter’s touch is combined with a vast amount of detail. The choice of colours enhances the experience of natural light.

Dutch artist Van de Laak, born in Vught  in 1958, studied at the AKI in Enschede. She lives and works in Heerewaarden. After her studies her career took off in the 1980s at Galerie Espace in Amsterdam. From 1999 till 2018 she was represented by Galerie Nouvelles Images in The Hague.

Her work forms part of the public collections of Teylers Museum, Haarlem and the Museum Gouda, as well as the corporate art collections of AkzoNobel, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ABN AMRO, the Central Bank of The Netherlands, Van Landschot Kempen, PostNL, and BPD, among others.
