Gabriel Marquez – El Paso, Texas
Marquezʼs work takes on a fluid approach, the artwork he creates is freeform combined
with symbolic features of desert animals and mystic creatures creating a mesmerizing
image. Marquezʼs artwork explores themes of motion and stillness by using progressive
contour lines in a pictorial realm that wanders between emptiness and fullness. The
artwork, although still, creates a continuous movement with the use of repetitive linear forms.
Known for his intricate line drawings of fantastically surreal beings and dreamscapes,
Marquez often works intuitively and allows the markings he creates to bring about the
final outcome of the compositionʼs imagery.
