> DESCRIPTION

In the latest series Skin Deep, part of the landscape is the representation of Paredes' own body. For this work, she chose specific natural fabrics as printed linen. Pure linens come from a plant and in this case, flora is printed on them, so there is an inherent double value, a plant representing a plant. Paredes states, “I wrap, cover or paint my body with the same pattern of the material and re-present myself as part of that landscape. Through this act, I am working on the theme of building my own identification with the entourage or part of the world where I live or where I feel I can call home. My bio has been described as nomadic so maybe this is also a need of addressing the process of constant relocation. There is also the factor in my mind that flora as we know it, is coming to be endangered so with all these preoccupations, I think that in these works, aesthetics bind with the anthropologic in order to register fragments of personal and social memory.”
