“I was raised in Chilecito, La Rioja, and it was there that my characters appeared, prepared with their great simplicity to change my view on the world. Set in relief against a spotless white background, they constructed ideas which when repeated, created a story that was at the same time an unbearable noise, part of a great cycle,” is how the Argentine artist Paloma Marquez explains her work.
In 2006 Marquez came to Buenos Aires to study a technical degree in Sound and Recording and a licenciate in Audiovision. That year she obtained a scholarship from ProyectArte, a nonprofit organization supporting young artists. She was also part of the Project School at the Isidro Miranda Gallery. Currently she is completing a postgraduate degree in Administration and Cultural Management at the IUNA. Since 2012 she has assisted the photographer Jorge Roiger and the painter Eugenio Cuttica. Her paintings have been exhibited in Chilecito, La Rioja, Córdoba, La Pampa, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, the Argentine Consulate of New York, and Zurich.
