• Paloma Mayorga

Sarofim School of Fine Arts’ Gallery features the solo work of artist Paloma Mayorga ’10. Solo mía (Only Mine) is a series of photographic self-portraits that deconstruct the rhetoric used to censor, consume and criticize the female body. Carefully arranged seeds, flowers, salt, hair and other discarded objects found in nature, interact with fragments of the artist’s body. Ms. Mayorga utilizes lipstick stains as war paint against gender-specific roles, and saliva and water as metaphors for rebirth. She aims to find a deeper connection between body and earth as a means to empower women to feel liberated and relish in their own forms of self-expression.
