Most viewers are not aware of the fact that when Christopher
Roy Gabel Paints, his process rarely if ever includes the
use of a paintbrush or paint mediums or thinners.Most of the
paint that covers the surface of his canvas is applied
almost exclusively with his fingers,and larger areas with
scrapers and palette knives. Though it is not clear on the
website, it becomes much more evident when the viewer is
faced with his work in the flesh. When one is confronted by
one of his canvas', one can see more clearly that his
fingers are the tools with which he prefers to work, and the
actual visible marks and fingerprints amongst the dabs,
smudges, and smears to be found therein;his signature,
especially since he refuses to actually sign his works
anywhere on their face.|
