Evanescent – A textile and mixed media sculpture

Paola Idrontino, recently completed Evanescent, a textile and mixed media sculpture which portrays coral bleaching caused by climate change.

In this video, you can take a small glimpse of some of her making processes and the motivation behind her recent work.

Her website shows artworks that condense into extraordinary costumes and accessories. Each one is a unique, wearable artwork, photographs elaborate tableaux that portray deep aspects of the psyche, the finished image being a stunning phantasmagorical picture full of mystery, beauty, and insight. 

She is stirred by the passion for storytelling, textile, and beauty within nature, otherworldly wearable costumes and creatures from the deep sea. 

Paola, who is based in Barcelona, often documents her work process on Instagram and Facebook.
