Sofía Samayoa Sánchez, 2022
Residency period: October 12- November 30
Public presentation: November 10
Bio and project residency: Guatemalan-canadian artist, recently Graduated from the National Fine Arts School “Rafael Rodríguez Padilla” in Guatemala with a printmaking specialization. My work is based on the representation of psychological and sentimental concerns, mainly linked to body image and the struggle to exist and navigate the world in an unconventional body. The premise is to represent non-traditional figures in an artistic and respectful way, focusing my attention on the perception of feminine and fat beings.
This residency is in partnership with the “Rafael Rodríguez Padilla” National School of Fine Arts in Guatemala.
