Carolina Gutiérrez

My paintings stem from the close, intimate observation of human skin; that place where personal history is printed on and narrated by each spot, each crease, and each wrinkle. We are what is visible on our skin; which makes us readable and therefore vulnerable. My work explores that vulnerability; the risk we encounter under the gaze of ourselves. It also aims to reveal untold stories, capture past experiences and future hopes or longings, in the sheer physicality of the present moment. I use animal skin as my canvas, because I want to bring the character out of both, the painting and the skin, merging them together as one to tell one whole story. The skin itself has its marks and scars and so does the character in the painting. They are put together to complement each other and build a story through an unconventional means of expression.
