Paula Wright was born in New York City, a child of Argentinean immigrant parents. She studied architecture and minored in fine art at The Pratt Institute. While she started her career in architecture, she later turned to “…my love of painting. My life led me to Italy, where I further immersed in painting and art history and taught a beginner painting class.”
Her work evolved from painting landscapes into more abstract mixed media pieces that explore the contrast between man-made objects and fluid forms in nature. She says she was “inspired by my son who is studying computer science, and I began to see recycled objects like circuit boards, computer parts, collage, and found objects like gravel sand and sea shells” she combined with paint and resin to form a composition with layers of intertwining materials.
“Mixed media has opened up a whole new world to explore…My work shows how Indiana, like myself, is evolving and becoming modernized, attracting high-tech companies. Our music and arts culture are growing.”
