A SERIES OF PAINTINGS MADE DURING LOCKDOWN INSPIRED BY MY MEMORIES OF HOME.
Historias Del LLano
This work is inspired by Juan Rulfo, a Mexican writer who captured the spirit of Mexico after the Revolution of 1910. His book El llano en llamas and Pedro Páramo evoke the nostalgia of rural towns like Comala -a beautiful white town in the state of Colima where Paula grew up. The images in this series work as short stories inspired by her memories of these places. Doors, windows and interstitial spaces represent the passageways into the magical and mystical Mexico of Juan Rulfo’s stories.
Tradicion y Culto
This series is a mosaic of Mexican life-celebrating its rich culture and traditions. The works are inspired by Mexico’s folklore, music, dances, and religious festivals that echo the ethnic diversity of the country; and by the unique colors that have become a trademark of its identity.
El Condor Pasa
The compositions in this series are inspired by the Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Roble. Like Rulfo’s stories, his emblematic El condor pasa, has become a symbol of South American Andean culture. The images are conceived as a hymn to Latin America and a journey through this marvelous continent seen through the eyes of the condor gliding across real and imaginary landscapes.
