In this Exhibition, "Drafts", George Gabriel opens his sketch books, announces his blueprints, his ideas, his reflections, the way he thinks and the process by which he creates his works.
In the creative process in the Visual Arts, and not only, the sketch or sketches that are made, before the final work, are the cornerstone of a work. Recording, what an artist imagines, his ideas, thoughts, and reflections through the drafts are the initial stage of conceiving a work. That is why they often include in them a dynamic greater than the final work.
