‘A-diccion’ by Paula Nahmod
The movement in the cities is constant, graffities, publicity signs, neon lights, people transportation below and beneath the pavement, patterns…their repetition, accumulation, superposition, generates visual saturation in different scales. The velocity in which we move everyday generates a memory of several images that we decodify according to our own experience of urban life. In my paintings I am interested on expressing my own chaotic sensation of the metropolis.

Lisa: For how long have you been painting and where did you learn to paint?
Paula: I’ve been painting since secondary school. At the beginning I painted with tempera on paper and I used to draw with chalk on a very big blackboard I had in my room. When I finished my Architecture Degree at the University of Buenos Aires I started to go to artist’s ateliers to learn more. Carolina Antoniadis was my main teacher.
