Paulina Padilla is a multidisciplinary artist based between Mexico and Canada. Her work navigates human instinct and the body in all its different manifestations. She exposes contemporary modes of corporal representation and viewership as platforms charged consistent noise and distractions. Her paintings provide an antidote of introspective silence, from these and allow us to be closer to ourselves.
Paulina studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Ontario College of Art & Design University. She recently had her first solo show San Miguel de Allende and has been part of several group exhibitions across Mexico and Canada. Padilla is also a lecturer on subjects such as adversity and liminality. With a strong interest in pedagogy, she has worked in the education department at the Contemporary Art Museum Querétaro-Mexico and runs workshops independently at schools and in her studio.
