About Antoine Gaber Art : Prof. Matty Roca

Translated from Spanish, unedited quote

December 2003

” Through Antoine Gaber pictorial voyage, one encounters color, and nature with the Artist own style of painting and brushstrokes. Self-taught artist, his starting point is his interest in all “creative evolution of things” and through his emotions and sensibility his interpretation of nature and details, becomes alive.

The mastering of his impressionistic style delivers in his art, the creation of contrast, tones, and a special rhythmic dynamism of light and of shade, are without any doubts, his strongest points.

The poetical reading of his artwork provides a universe of internal peace and silence. One can imagine being in a bucolic (pastoral) landscape filled with flowers and, a pond dotted with water lilies that irrevocably leads in his profound inhabited emotions felt during the creation of his paintings. “

February 2005

” Gaber contemplates the immense ideal and he has the spirit of art in his brain. The vibrating light is his anthem and the melody of landscapes finds shelter in his heart. He opens his arms to nature’s eternal beauty showing the magnificence of things in his shapes: the rose, the lily, and the snow…
He loves rainbows and the great palette of a flowery countryside with its colors and shades. He worships light and embraces it with tenderness. In his canvas he has reflected the great art he carries inside, from Wagner’s orchestral fantasies to the perception of an attentive philosopher who listens to the music of the stars.
From the roar of the tempest to the bird’s singing, everything melts together and connects in an infinite rhythm that emerges from a pure sky and wraps it with a sweet wave. From the distant horizon to the quivering and humble grass…
To my dear friend, with my love and admiration. Thanks for your altruism and your great heart full of love, for the eyes of your soul and for your perfect concept of the visible world and human spirit.”
