The exhibition The Painted Veil forges an intuitive path through the themes that have concerned the Galician Artist throughout her career. Using the symbolism of the curtain as a departure point because of its ability to hide or highlight reality, The Painted Veil speaks of the different emotional layers that are hidden behind our identity and the constraints that prevent us from taking control of our lives and becoming owners of our time.

The project is organized in two environments. Located on the ground floor is the social stage, which refers to public life, and specifically alludes to the way in which women experience the artistic profession. In this first area, the pictorial installation: Sorority Gallery (2018-2019), stands out. It honors women who generation after generation, claim the recognition of women’s contributions to the History of Humanity. On the top floor, we enter the intimate space of the house, which is woven from biographical and educational conditioning. There, the emotional sphere is expressed with joy and pain. In this second area, amongst other works, is the installation Desarraigo (Uprooted) (2018): a wall disturbingly populated with cockroaches. This is a mirror of the violence that can be generated in the context of domestic spaces.

With a precious and observed facture, Paula Noya draws a poetic universe where longings and fears want to become hope, by leaning on an artist practice based on self-knowledge and the energy of sisterhood among women. For this reason, in order to welcome people who want to share their experiences, the entire space was conceived to have a warm and cozy atmosphere.

The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Feli Morán Medina, a very dear friend of the artist.
