Anya Tish Gallery is pleased to present "Desire Lines", the gallery’s inaugural exhibition of Houston-based artist Gabriel Martinez. Drawing on histories of both quilting and painting the exhibition features hand-stitched fabric paintings created from clothing found in the street on the artist’s travels throughout the city. Martinez employs the concept of the trace to explore spaces created for the body (garments, neighborhoods, factories, quilts) and the ways bodies, in turn affect and mark those spaces.
