Gabriel Mark Lipper | Oregon, United States

Gabriel Mark Lipper is an Ashland-based artist whose work addresses, in his words, "the growing schism between self and other".
He works predominantly in oil and makes paintings that are classical in nature.
He has studied in Germany, Italy and Japan and has been shown at numerous galleries in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere on the West Coast, including at the Hanson Howard Gallery in Ashland and at the Elan Gallery in Jacksonville.

His work is held in corporate collections that include Blackstone Audio in Ashland and the Harry and David permanent collection.

"I love to paint. I’ve been blessed by timing.
To be alive right now for this chapter in arts history is a phenomenal gift.

Classicism, once pronounced “dead” is reemerging with a new contemporary vitality.
The gifts of modernism: color, form, and abstraction, are now being seamlessly integrated with the craftsmanship and techniques of the past".
