JUROR: Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas
Originally from Denver, Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas is a printmaker, artist, educator and activist who reckons with what it means to live within the complicated, blurry lines of borders and ancestral lands. They earned their BA at Carleton College and their MFA in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. Paloma’s work aims to portray the intersections between humans and nature, merging the two for insights on migration, queerness, and ever-shifting socio-geographic boundaries. To portray these aspects in regard to the living world around us, they utilize textiles, cyanotype, and mesh fabric printed with designs of trees, sky, and water. Their work has been shown at both national and international venues such as the Handwerker Gallery, Buffalo Artist’s Studios, and Sediment Arts. They have attended residencies at Casa Lu, ACRE, the Women’s Studio Workshop, the Kala Art Institute and at Japan’s Mi-Lab, and are now based in Los Angeles, CA.
