About the Artist Caitlin Padilla

Caitlin Padilla is a working artist based in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Caitlin Padilla

     I am a Spiritual Surrealist painter from New Mexico, having a family foundation of centuries here. My work is an evolution of my journey through navigating connection and relationships, spirituality, ideology and imagination. Through my work, I push myself to connect and understand the ethereal nature of being and the universe. 
    I am inspired by philosophy, existentialism, emotion, Sacred Geometry, the interconnectedness of the Universe, and the relationship between vulnerability and power. Encompassing the beauty and repetition in nature on both the large and small scale and examining it on a deeper level. 
     I believe in involving my audience in my process as much as possible, and live paint at every event. Inviting connection and exposing myself and my process, and creating an open, authentic and vulnerable dialogue. 
      Active in the community, I can be found vending and live painting at the Downtown Grower's Market, The Rail Yards as well as numerous galleries and First Friday events throughout Albuquerque and Santa Fe. My work is available at The Octopus and the Fox and Metal The Store. I started Golden Spiral Designs in 2016, and have partnered with William Wooten to create Pigment Pushers, a painting event and class at numerous restaurants and bars in Albuquerque. I am classically trained artist with a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

My work reflects the influences of Surrealism, Kahlo, Dali, Grey, Magritte, Geiger, Escher, Picasso, and as well as Mannerism, Modernism and Spanish Colonialism.

Techniques

I primarily work in oil paint, in various sizes of canvas. After years of working in acrylic, I have found oil to be more rich and vibrant, allowing me to create depth and layering. Detailed brushwork is a cornerstone of my work, recently branching into broader less controlled stokes with palette knife.
