TARA BLACKWELL is American but lives in North America
Mexican artist Alba Páramo’s artworks come from dreams and are deeply rooted in her Latin American culture. Her reveries of love, nature and sacred connection are interpreted through images of animals and humanity. These subjects interact together as well as with the riches provided by our planet—flora, gems, and the land. Páramo’s imagery is inspired by symbolism, mythology, literature, cultural history and Tibetan art.
Páramo understands the power and dualistic nature of art—that it is both diverse and universal in its ability to open the human mind and senses. She is pushed by her curiosity and continues to expand her working processes and mediums to achieve the best result by exploring their unlimited possibilities.
What we love
As a printmaker specializing in etching, Páramo is able to achieve sinuous and precise lines that lure us deeper into the details of her works. Her skills as a printmaker became a natural segue and foray into screen printing. Páramo's interest in fashion and textiles inspired her to transform artworks into clothing. She has has released numerous limited edition drops of her imagery, which include clothing printed by hand.
Páramo’s works are open ended and she invites you to interpret and connect with them are you like. There is a welcoming inclusivity to her work, a kind of dialogue between viewer and artist as we navigate her themes and explorations. Her connection to her Mexican heritage and Tibetan culture are delivered in her bold, bright prints and line art. Animals, jewelry, and humanity meet in her narratives to encourage a more holistic world view. All together, her works remind us that we are one and the same on a universal level.
