Gabriela received her BFA from California College of the Arts in the winter of 2012. She paint portraits that depict nearly still figures submerged within a destabilized landscape. Her paintings grasp on what is in constant movement and change in an over stimulated environment. Gabriela aims to capture an amplified state where figures fall apart and become a part of a new landscape.  In her process of deconstructing and repainting, layers of previous paintings are still present. Her work is very process based, physical and experimental. She uses a range of brushes and squeegees to create specific marks that guide the composition of each painting. With the use of sludgy mark-making in contrast with sharp geometric shapes, she interested in the convergence of opposites where movement and stillness can exist concurrently.
