Artist: Gabriel Marquez

Entangled Me" | Gabriel Marquez
“Entangled Me“ | Gabriel Marquez

“Intersecting Parallels” is a crossroad from black and white schemes into more experimental depths of color keeping in line with the monochromatic order. It’s a timeline of past to present works that are in the process of a metamorphosis for the next phases ofGabriel Marquez' work. The undercoating layers of color create spaces where they would have otherwise been empty.

Marquez creates drawings, sculpture,and paintings that explore motion, stillness, and the progression and digression of lines in a pictorial realm that wanders between emptiness and fullness. 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 composition’s imagery.

Marquez was born in El Paso, Teto parents from Mexico. He studied painting and graphic design at the University of Texas at El Paso receiving a BFA in Studio Art, before moving to Washington where he works as a technical designer in the interior design field for the aviation industry. An active member of the Seattle art community, Marquez has exhibited in multiple exhibitions with the Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA), as well as True Love Art Gallery, Axis Gallery, and Mainframe Gallery, among many others. In summer 2016, he was a featured artist in the acclaimed “La Cocina” pop-up Latinx art space, organized by non-profit La Sala: A Latinx Artists’ Network.
