Says Paula do Prado of her work Boundary: “This work is about setting boundaries with others and with oneself. It is also about the real and perceived boundaries that may be protecting us or that we feel hold us back.”
Paula’s Hybrid Forms series references a combination of forms; feminine and masculine reproductive organs, animals (owls, octopi, jellyfish) and ceremonial African masks. Eyes are a recurring symbolic motif as windows to the soul, seeing and not seeing and simultaneously looking towards the past and future. Each work in the series is highly individual and a one-off piece.
The intensive handmade process blends traditional and non-traditional textile techniques and materials. Form, colour, texture and a ‘making do’ aesthetic reflect the artist’s Afro-Uruguayan heritage. Hybrid Forms are talisman-like objects that attempt to connect to the spiritual through the power of transformation.
