BIOGRAPHY

 

Born in México City she studies architecture, career she forsakes on behalf of the painting brushes she would never let go.

Starts formal artistic education in the National School of Plastic Arts in Mexico City; attends classes in the Museum-Studio of Mexican Watercolor Painting where she is tutored by the great mexican watercolor painter Alfredo Guati Rojo. She is also a disciple of Raul Anguiano and later an attendee of the great master Luis Nishizawa, who inherited ancient techniques from japanese as well as Mexican painting traditions.

She makes studies in viceregal iconography with famous anthropologist and author Mariano Monterroso, visiting the most important temples, sites and collections of religious art from 16th to 19th centuries  and she developes a keen sight and appreciation for colonial art and semiology. Currently she attends a seminar in art history at the MUNAL, National Museum of Art.

Besides her career as a painter, she has done aesthetic and historic investigations, works as a curator and museographer for the University of Mexico State as well as for other institutions.

 

 

ARTISTIC APPROACH

 

ROCÍO G. PÁEZ is a visual artist committed to her message. Her symbolic paintings are meaningful and maintain a very intimate dialog with the observer. Strong art conveying strong words.

Her aesthetic universe unfolds in her struggle for a generation free from the burden of gender inequality, the search for harmonic relationships based on mutual respect and the acknowledgement of differences, desires and asymmetries on which women from all over the world have to survive every day.

The creative act is for Rocío G. Páez a quest against indifference, which is yet another form of violence.

She makes studies in viceregal iconography with famous anthropologist and author Mariano Monterroso, visiting the most important temples, sites and collections of religious art from 16th to 19th centuries  and she developes a keen sight and appreciation for colonial art and semiology. Currently she attends a seminar in art history at the MUNAL, National Museum of Art.

Besides her career as a painter, she has done aesthetic and historic investigations, works as a curator and museographer for the University of Mexico State as well as for other institutions.
