Paloma Sánchez

My artwork attempts to analyse the social, political and cultural reality. By investigation, discussion and self-taught methods I intend to evaluate our ways of understanding our world from a critical point of view.

As a result of this analytical vision some arguments have come to mind, which have caused me to unlearn established patterns, to build new thoughts and points of view. My work is a result of those new thoughts, and aims to give the viewer a starting point for rethinking the world, realizing the reality we are living in, questioning and changing it.

My latest research about society has been around gender issues from a feminist point of view, understanding it as a social construction, questioning roles and relating it to philosophers such as Beatriz Preciado, Queer Theory and others.
