Art Madrid'23 – Lara Padilla
The work of Ms. D, a.k.a. Lara Padilla, encompasses disciplines such as painting, sculpture, dance, performance and fashion design. Her pieces, mostly figurative, direct attention to the power of female representation through the deformation of the body and the use of color and textures. A vindication of gender exhibited through large hands as powerful instruments of battle or heavy feet, image of the perseverance of women in their struggle. Sra D. understands art, not as a silent showcase, but as a path of action and political intervention. Her aesthetic is an ode to diversity, portraying all types of bodies in pursuit of promoting a look of equality and authenticity.
