'The physical beauty of her island surrounds is a foundation of Lewenz's works and continues themes she has explored over the last twenty years.  The rhythms of nature and the four elements - air earth, fire and water - that are so dominant in her landscape recur throughout her works and reflect her deep connection to the natural environment.

Yet, it is the fifth element, etheric or quintessence that underpins her practice. The fluid, intuitive, ethereal and the spiritual are conveyed through her artistic process which involves combining and layering works using a selection of materials.  This organic approach to art making evokes the lyricism of the natural world whilst acknowledging the role of the random, haphazard and chaotic'

Gabriella works with handmade oils on canvas and wood, often incorporating clay, ash and charcoal with the oils and pigment mixtures.
