Alicia Paz: The Garden of Follies

Alicia Paz: The Garden of Follies
Library Shelf Location 18.PAZ
Publication Date 2016

Alicia Paz grew up in Mexico and studied in California, Paris, and London. Her paintings seem infused with the interplay of impressions gathered at all of these stations—and her life path as an artist is exemplary for our time, with its borders and the cultural overlaps, mutual contemplations, and reflections connected to this phenomenon. The invariably female personages appearing in her paintings, paper reliefs, and recently also favored medium of cut-out sculptures create a role-play of iridescent identities. The catalog book provides both an overview of her painterly oeuvre of the recent years and an opportunity for readers to engage with her artistic thought process, which is visualized and made concrete here. By employing pictorial overlaps, punching, glitter effects, and special paper inlays, the book operates with a similar diversity in terms of visual components as the art works do, hereby giving this catalog a decidedly object-like character.
