FROM KOLAJ #23
El Paso, Texas, USA
Paulina Flores is collage artist and a nursing student at the University of Texas at El Paso. As a nursing student and an atheist, Flores finds beauty, pureness and complexity in the human body, which is why she tends to focus her collages on anatomy and controversial opinions of our current society. The works are intentionally grotesque, to reflect the malformed opinions of our society. The artist mirrors pureness with the human body while uncovering her interpretation of mass behavior. Flores’ work has been shown in Phoenix, El Paso, and Juarez, Mexico. A portfolio of her work appears in Kolaj #23.
I am not very good with my words or writing, so I chose to incorporate my beliefs and my frustrations into something that I take pride in doing, collaging.
