Artist and educator Anabel Toribio-Martinez investigates the neurosis created by modern-day living and the obsession of digital devices in her new exhibition Disquiet.

Disquiet opens at Rubio Gallery—South (111 Probandt, San Antonio) on First Friday, January 6, 2017 from 7-10pm. The exhibition is curated by Alex Rubio.

Since earning her MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio and BFA from Baylor University, Toribio-Martinez has exhibited in several Texas venues, including the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, Mexic-Arte Museum, Blue Star Art Complex and the Southwest School of Art. In 2016, she was a finalist for the Hunting Prize in Houston, Texas.

With Disquiet, Toribio-Martinez hopes to expand on her curiosity in how society is affected by an overload of information in the age of technology by isolating the figure and creating a study in body language and psychological space.

“In my previous work, I depicted the dynamics of relationships in domestic spaces,” said Toribio-Martinez, who is currently a teacher at the Edgewood Fine Arts Academy. “There was an underlying theme of inattentiveness and preoccupation, manifested in the various patterns, juxtaposed against my figures. In Disquiet, I remove the context in which these subjects exist.”
