Lara Padilla’s work covers disciplines such as paint, sculpture, dance, performance and fashion design.
Her mostly figurative pieces draw attention to the power of female representation through the deformation of the body and the use of colors and textures.
Gender empowerment is exhibited through large hands as powerful instruments of battle or heavy feet, an image of the perseverance of women in their historic struggle. Lara 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 order to promote a look of equality and authenticity.
