Gabriela Sánchez Apodaca (Mexico City, 1972), has a degree in Textile Design from the Universidad Iberoamericana, and is a candidate for a Visual Communication teacher. Over the years, he has incorporated his academic training into his work as a visual artist. Activity that is currently dedicated full time.
Since graduating from the Master's in Visual Communication, Sánchez Apodaca has been consolidating a career that combines the personal search for a poetics based on the technical mastery of materials, with a set of individual and collective exhibitions. In this area, there are exhibitions in cities such as Chicago (USA), Havana (Cuba), Oaxaca (Mexico), San Miguel de Allende (Mexico) and different spaces and museums in Mexico City and Cuernavaca; through which Gabriela Sánchez shows a clear consolidation of her own discourse and increasingly solid in its forms of aesthetic enunciation.
It is difficult to think that this process that led Sanchez Apodaca to find an original and solid discourse could have been given without his contact with Professor Huascar Taborga, who introduces it to the understanding and incorporation of fundamental parts of the oriental aesthetic. In particular, the notion of gestures and movement, with which the artist expands its production codes and converts facts such as the selection of paper or ink into definitive parts of her creation process.
Between 2002 and 2016, Gabriela Sánchez integrates a numerous and diverse work in which, however, some common elements have an impact. Among them, his exploration of the line as a form of representation undoubtedly stands out. At the same time as his increasingly broad notion of writing in its original sense, that is, as an inscription. It is from this time that the artist's conviction arises that the origin of the stroke is the stroke itself.
Thus, in Sanchez Apodaca each writing, opens on the canvas an incisive line that penetrates, marks and erases its own path. The crack that makes visible and hides the being.
Gabriela Sánchez currently combines the time she dedicates to her intense production of work and the delivery of workshops in different techniques.
