gabriel·lester:The films and installations of Gabriel Lester work from the inside out. They aim to provoke dramatic tension and direct the gaze inwardly as well as outwardly. These works, which occupy both time and space, are made up out of dramatic suggestions and are either implicitly narrative, explicitly visual or both at once. The frequent use of cinematographic devices, such as montage, sequences, crosscuts and spatial edits, provide a tension span or at times a storyline. Subjects, such as psychology of space, constitution of memory, evocation of predicament, magic thought, set-up and pay-off, and destiny, surface frequently in his art works.
