BIOGRAPHY

Gabriela Sánchez Apodaca (Mexico City, 1972), holds a degree in Textile Design by the Universidad Iberoamericana, and is a master’s degree candidate in visual communication.  Throughout the years, she has incorporated her academic background to her work as visual artist; activity to which she currently devotes her full time.
Since her graduation from the Master’s Degree in Visual Communication, Sánchez Apodaca has been consolidating a career combining the personal search for poetics based on technical proficiency of materials and a set of exhibits, both individual and collective.  In this area, exhibits in cities such as Chicago (USA), La Habana (Cuba), Oaxaca (Mexico), San Miguel de Allende (Mexico) and various spaces and museums in Mexico City and Cuernavaca, stand out; through which Gabriela Sánchez shows a clear consolidation of her own statement which is evermore sound in its aesthetic enunciation.
It is quite difficult to consider that this process that has taken Sánchez Apodaca to discover an original and sound statement could have been possible without her contact with Professor Huascar Taborga, who introduced her to the comprehension and incorporation of fundamental elements of oriental aesthetics.  Particularly the notion of gestures and movement, with which the artist broadens her production codes and turns facts, such as the choice of paper or ink, into ultimate parts of her creative process.
Between 2002 and 2016, Gabriela Sánchez incorporates a countless artistic work in which some common elements have a substantial impact.  Among these, its exploration of the line as a way of representation undoubtedly stands out.  As does her increasingly broader notion of writing in its original meaning, this is, as inscription.  It is during this time when the conviction of the artist that the origin of stroke is stroke itself, emerges.
Hence, in Sánchez Apodaca every script opens on canvas an incisive line penetrating, stamping and erasing its own path; the crack that makes the being visible and hides it.
Today, Gabriela Sánchez combines time dedicated to the intense production of its art work and teaching workshops in different techniques.
