Gabriel Roca


Gabriel Roca (Tenerife, 1959-) is a multidisciplinary artist whose final work is as important as the process. His work involves generating sounds, wind, movements and vibrations to create drawings with the matter. He manipulates native materials (sand, stones, pine needles), revising thus their traditional uses to arrive at a reinterpretation of our reality and our environment.

His creative process is based on his interest in science and nature applied to the graphic process. Dots, drawing, the forest, repetition and experimentation in different techniques are all resources that Gabriel uses to recreate nature in his work. He creates calligraphies portraying elements of the landscape; as Angel Padrón explains, he creates “an image that becomes a text.”
