Through my work I want to create a conversation between color, shape, movement and texture. The objective is to create a tension, but also a certain balance so that one component doesn't overpower the other.

Paola Rodriguez Arias

About the Artist

Journal: Paola Rodriguez Arias: Gallery

Paola Rodriguez Arias (b. 1975) is a visual artist and designer based in Geneva, Switzerland. With a background in fashion, jewelry and ceramic design, Paola’s inspiration for her current textile-based works are informed by her upbringing in Colombia and its rich tradition of handicraft. Paola creates her work through a meticulous process of coiling yarn onto panels to create symbolic compositions that incorporate references to found objects, figures and the natural landscape. Though the meditative act of constructing her compositions, Paola’s work is inherently contemplative, allowing her to imbue the work with votive-like meaning.
