Leslie Gabriëlse, textile artist

Leslie uses fabric in all its manifestations. He molds fabrics just as a painter mixes his paints to get the exact color. Textile is a delicate and perishable material. Everyone is familiar with textile, everyone wears it- often right next to the skin- and it is very intimate. You are in contact with it; it is comfortable, warm, cold and sun. These qualities inherent in textiles also apply to Leslie's works, his wall-hangings delight; they provide warmth and intimacy.

It is with a great deal of pleasure
-as he himself says, it's a lot of fun
- that Leslie Gabriëlse works on his oeuvre. His art is about friends and friendship, love and desire, theater, beauty and landscapes.

Leslie is a master in the manipulation of fabrics; he does not only sew, he also paints onto the fabrics, pleats and kneads them. He make no secret of his methods, as can be seen from this book.

What is so extraordinary about this book is that by thumbing through a selection of Leslie's oeuvre, we are given the opportunity to observe the developments in his work. He is a disciplined and hardworking artist and is always passionate in his desire to create and always goes his own way.

Leslie Gabrielse AuthorAbout the Author

A born cosmopolitan Leslie Gabriëlse was born as Leslie Leus Georgius, on January 24 1940 in Semarang, on the Indonesian island of Java, then part of the colonial Dutch East Indies. His father, Leus Gabriëlse, worked for an international trading company; his mother, Theodora (Ted) Drabbe, worked as a fashion designer.

On a photograph taken in January 1942, we see Leslie with his grandfather, the painter Johan Gabriëlse. His younger brother, Francis, is in the baboe's nanny's) arms. Johan Gabriëlse and grandma Suze are also on Java, on invitation from the native princes for portrait commissions, in the area of Surakarta. Johan also paints pictures of Java, for grandfather Johan Gabriëlse is also one of the creators of large historical and topographical school posters which portray The Netherlands and distant countries, in particular of the Dutch East Indies. Published by J.B. Wolters (Groningen, Den Haag, Batavia), they decorated the walls of every classroom in elementary schools across the country, not even half a century ago. As the creator of such school posters, Johan Gabriëlse is named in one and the same breath with Jetses, Ising, Bottema, De Bruin and Bueninck.

It is through his grandfather that Leslie will carry on, in the male line, the artistic tradition in the family. One of Leus' sisters is the portrait painter, Corrie Gabriëlse. Not the least of Leslie's talent, however, is inherited from his mother.

Included in the book is the Project Quilt
