That Mountain Over There (now I see her). Solo Show. Gallery Fritz.
“Moth Field,” Reconciliation
Invited by Dr. Estevan Rael-Gálvez and MOCNA Curator Manuela Well-Off-Man to create statewide community art project advancing the conversation on the legacy of Spanish Colonialism in the context of Native cultures as it relates to the now discontinued Entrada Celebration in Santa Fe.
The exhibition was called, “HEAVY METAL,” and it showcases female artists from around the world working with the medium of metal. Paula was the only artist represented from New Mexico. Hear Paula’s Artist Talk at the Museum about her exhibition there:
“I am a contemporary sculptor known for creating form by hand-welding thousands of tiny pieces of metal bi-product together. My preference is for industrial materials scavenged from regional fabricators and scrap yards to simultaneously ‘show and tell’ a piece of the suffocating dislocation of matter. The work annexes minimalist forms and re-inscribes them with a quietly schizophrenic division between the organized desire to dissolve into the world (using permeable webs capable of catching detritus and treasures alike) and the need to buttress margins (using antagonistic and unfriendly obstacles and traps). Ultimately the final goal for all of my artwork really is to expose our real, dense and buried attachments to the ‘other’.”
