Driven by narrative, Paula Sayago Lundin builds intricate scenes with animal-like figures bubbling with passion and intrigue. The artist uses color like a veil, blinding us to some of her characters’ worst intentions. In Society Dust, a female armadillo cries for help on the floor as a unicycle-riding alligator hovers over her with a long tray of red balls. A delicate scene seconds away from dissolving into chaos. In Anniversary Dust, a group of animals sits around the table with a celebratory cake in the center, each one wrapped up in a maze of emotion and desire. These intense emotional outbursts become fuel for the artist as she transitions from one scene to the next, creating a universe of interconnected worlds.

Trained at the Universidad Mayor in Santiago, Chile, Lundin paints a rich tapestry of life filled with uncertainty and unease. As a trained writer, dancer and illustrator, Lundin sets the mise-en-scène as if the canvas were a window into a play or film, giving her the tools to explore complex relationships that mirror our own.
