Paloma Marquez

 

Chileciteñan (Chilecito) artist by adoption, where her first drawings and compositions appeared. In this arid city, she grew surrounded by mountains, studied music, beekeeping, attended as a listener to classes of Visual Arts, and approached contemporary art observing her mother Alicia Alba.

When she arrived in Buenos Aires she received the ProyectArte Scholarship, intense teaching with high level artists, together with this foundation she had the opportunity to exhibit her works in different countries. She was part of the Escuela de Proyectos de la Galería Isidro Miranda.

From 2012 to 2017 she worked as assistant to the photographer Jorge Roiger, and the painters: Daniel Corvino and Eugenio Cuttica.

Statement

Man as a module inside a complex and infinite system.

Man from his most simple aspect, his cycles and processes, his thoughts, and the situations that stand in his way and that he must solve, analyzing the obstacles, but always "calmly active and actively calm" (Paramahansa Yogananda)

The whole society as a reflection of each individual. The crowds move as if following a choreography, they divide, compress and disperse. This mass of people, objects and thoughts, generate noise, eternal murmurs. Just as the whole is nothing ... the noise is transforms into silence by opposition.
