Born in Teufen (Canton of Appenzell) in 1963 and a Ticino citizen by adoption, Gabriela Maria Müller is essentially self-taught, having attended some courses at the School of Applied Arts in St. Gallen. Through subsequent training in ergotherapy, she was able to further expand her technical and artisanal know-how, using painting, sculpture, object art, textile art, installations and video with a versatile approach. Her works are part of public collections, including that of Canton Ticino, as well as private collections. She has exhibited in Paris and Venice in 2017, as well as in Ticino, at the Villa Pia Museum (Erich Lindenberg Art Foundation) in Porza in 2016 and at the Vincenzo Vela Museum in Ligornetto in 2019. From her deep and delicate relationship with nature, developed in a rural family environment, the artist draws an inexhaustible source of inspiration that is reflected in each of her works: her artistic process is developed through a meticulous arrangement of natural elements (such as seeds, leaves, blooms, pollen and soil) that produces new, sophisticated forms placed in relation with the structure within which they materialize.
