When art & gastronomy celebrate taste & color

On show at the "24" - An exhibition that makes sense as the colors of music blend with the cuisine of this restaurant with refined and subtle dishes. A journey from Burgundy to Place de la Concorde, a touch of colorful harmonies, the waltz of dishes, the fragrances of a conversation with Picasso... A beautiful encounter with the host of this place, passionate about painting.

Outing Idea ! As the Musée de l'Orangerie is nearby, Gabrielle Thierry invites you to visit it to try and understand how Monet's Water Lilies can provoke profound musical emotions. She spent 300 hours in total immersion in the oval halls of the museum, transcribing Monet's 8 Water Lilies onto large canvases in colorful scores that have so far only been exhibited in the USA.

Landscape & Color of sounds

"However, suddenly, it was the amazement. Gabrielle Thierry had removed the charcoal to replace it by an oil on canvas: it was at the same time the same landscape and another world. It is that the colors form an incomparable semiotic system. They reveal the links connecting our subjectivity to the things of this world. They give more or less clarity which enriches our palette and that of the world; they organize complementarities which wake up mysterious links between the things; finally they open correspondences between spaces and our way of experimenting them" M.-M.Münch about the series "Landscapes of Conflans", to be read in "L'Atelier de Gabrielle Thierry", Revue Internationale d'Art et d'Artologie n°6, 2022

Conversation with Picasso

Conversation with Picasso on Music, Oil on canvas, 165x130cm, 2021   

"While reading "Picasso and Music", the catalogue of the exhibition organized in Paris, I discovered that Picasso does not find obvious links between music and its representation in painting. I am a great admirer of his work, regardless of the period, and I decided to discuss with him the pictorial potential of music in painting."      ... More

« Remember to share music that will now color in modern painting. Colour, which is pure vibration, just like music, reaches what is the most general and therefore the vaguest in nature: its internal force»

Letter from Paul Gauguin M Fontainas, Mercure de France, Marsh 1899

A tribute to all women in music

This large format painting represents a conductor and her orchestra playing Beethoven's 7th. Symphony. The music invades the whole concert hall and becomes a colored space in movement.

This "Maestra" painting was inspired during the making of the film "Divertimento" directed by Marie Castille Mention-Schaar. This movie describes the journey of  a young high school student who has become a renowned conductor. 3 paintings by Gabrielle were selected for the set design, including the screen entitled OPERA.

From one inspiration to another, Prof. Marc-Mathieu Münch discovers the Conductor in the artist's studio and decided to write an article in his Revue internationale d'art et d'artologie.

The Garden

The Garden from my studio's window, Oil on canvas, 165x130cm, 2022

Inspired by Cezanne, Bonnard, Van Gogh,...

"Cezanne, Bonnard, VanGogh, Picasso, Gauguin  captured on their canvas trees, flowers and gardens. Alone in their differing countrysides with these floral harmonies where colors com alive, they have seen and caught the spirit of nature. After visiting the Morozov exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, back in my studio, I look out of my window and rediscover the shrubbery, the luminous greens, the trees and shadows, the irises, tulips, cherry and apple trees, in the vibration of the foliage.

From Figuration to Abstraction

Sketches and paintings were created during the covid pandemic. Gabrielle launched an international and collaborative project during the first lockdown, entitled #sketchyourwindow. Hundred of people from 24 countries sent the view from their window. An exhibition has been organized at the Musée des Beaux-Arts La Cohue, in Vannes, Brittany, France. 

Paris !

Small paintings capturing the singularity of Paris' roofs.
Oil on Canvas 20x20cm , 2021, Oak framing


This painting entitled Nocturne is part of the Harmony series started in 1919. The roofs of Paris - an eternal inspiration - their rhythm, their music were at the origin of the previous series of paintings Espace : Paris. 
Here, we are at the crossroads of Harmony and Space of the city, of architecture. 
The Bauhaus, whose centenary we celebrated this year, was a fabulous adventure for modernity that brought together different arts in one place to increase tenfold emotion, harmony, comprehension. Here architecture and music (whose languages are apparently distinct) structure this painting by a composition of their forms and colors.

"Together let us desire, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting" Walter Gropius, 1919

Paris: Space 7, oil on canvas, Polyptych 180x150cm, 2018

Rhythms over Paris

The series "Paris: Space" was inspired by the roofs of Paris and the rhythm of Dutilleux's sonata. 
In the tradition of the moderns, the paintings of Gabrielle Thierry, who lived in Pars for 15 years, remind us once again that abstraction in painting was born from the interaction of art and music.

Gabrielle Thierry  is the only artist in the world to have spent 300 hours in total immersion in the oval rooms of the Musée de l'Orangerie to understand their evocation. During 18 months, and 100 sessions of work, she translated all the 8 Monet's landscapes into colored musical scores.

"Gabrielle sees sound as color so when she hears music she actually sees it. So what you have here are notes from the music that are in color.” Iris and Gerald Cantor Art Gallery (US)

"On the canvas, the music offers me the composition of the landscape as well as the colors and the space of the landscape can evoke it. Intertwined, music and landscape are ultimately inseparable." 

Les Matinales

One of the first experiences on how to reveal the music of landscapes. The idea of a Music chapter on this site became obvious.
