Soup in its simplest of forms has the most complex histories behind them . As the first bite hits your palette\, you experience ingredients that com e from all over the world\, mixing and mingling together to form a collecti vely delectable dish. Gabriela Martinez acknowledges the significance of so ups both culturally and personally and will often incorporate caldos\, or s oups\, in her work. Coming from a multicultural background\, the prints bec ome Martinez's stew as she blends together personal storytelling with the h istory of printmaking to make a unique allegory\, allowing the viewer to no t only get a taste of Martinez's life but the aroma of the printmakers that came before her. - Jillian Nakornthap\, Curator
