New Representation

Cecilia Paredes

We are very proud to announce that we are now representing Peruvian multidisciplinary artist Cecilia Paredes. Using her body as a performative vessel merging painting, sculpture and photography, she is the centerpoint in each of her “photo performance”. Playing an active role in the narration, the background of her compositions is often made of patterns borrowed from tapestry or wallpapers and fills the entire frame including her body. Her identity, hence camouflaged in the backdrop, is distilled to a quintessentially feminine shape inviting the viewer to ponder the ways in which individuals are informed by their natural and cultural environments. Additionally, the omnipresence of vegetal or animal design depicts an ideal world where humanity blends in rather than dominates. her work explores a wide range of themes such as exile, integration, connection to nature, as well as biocentrism.
