HYBRID: the offspring of two plants or animals of different species or varieties; of mixed character; composed of mixed parts.

HYBRID is a new body of work created by Heather Gabel that addresses the processes of assimilation vs the act of appropriation. Through this minimally assembled collection of collages, both a natural desire to move towards a feral world and a more sinister motive rooted in control and objectification present themselves. How we see ourselves and our place in the natural world and how we are perceived and belittled in a capitalist society create conflict in attaining the ultimate goal: personal autonomy.

Heather Gabel (b. 1977) is a multidisciplinary visual artist and singer in the band HIDE. Gabel studied photography at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit and holds a BFA from Columbia College Chicago. She has been exhibiting both internationally and across the United States for nearly 12 years in galleries and alternative venues, including several public art installations.

The Carlton Arms Art Project and Artbreak Gallery

The Artbreak Hotel's gallery was created to continue and expand a magnificent artistic heritage and is a tribute to the expansion of the Carlton Arms Hotel  original vision and its thirty years patronage of artists .

Described as a 'live-in museum' by People Magazine, the Carlton Arms Hotel (aka Artbreak Hotel) through its Carlton Arms Art Project, has become a vibrant permanent exhibition of art, with every room and every inch of space covered with the incredible colorful work of talented artists. 

Artbreak Gallery provides the opportunity and the means for artists to exhibit their work in New York City  and  to benefit from this heritage.
