Episode 7: Paloma Mayorga - Healing & Empowerment in Art
Austin Art Talk
Since graduating from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, in 2010, Paloma Mayorga has inhabited and worked in three different art worlds. She has had a great career, at a young age, as a professional artist, has worked with and curated many exhibits for other artists and organizations, and has years of experience in art administration. Her own art focuses on women's issues, meaning, relating to others, seeing, gender limitations, personal narratives, and how we can heal and empower each other with our own self expression. Some of the subjects we discuss: Early art influences Falling in love with art in college Learning to see Art as self expression Working at the MACC Serie Project & Coronado Studio Print Austin Creating different series Evolution of a style Addressing issues Cruelty Free Photography Creating images Nature, women, & the planet #Metoo Healing & Inspiration Vulnerability Creating scans with nature Solo mía Curation Arts administration Links:PALOMA MAYORGA websitePaloma Mayorga - Best Visual Artist - 2017 - The Austin ChronicleThe Serie Project - Artist in Residence SpotlightDelilah Montoya Print - The Serie ProjectEmma S.
