Evanescent, (2016-2018) — is a textile and mixed-media sculpture, which portrays coral bleaching caused by climate change. In this video you can take a small glimpse into Paola's making processes and the motivation behind this work.
When I experienced diving for the first time I became enchanted with what I saw.
There is so much beauty hiding beneath the waves and with this project I wish to bring some of that beauty back out of the Ocean.
The world has lost roughly half its coral reefs in the last 30 years.
Climate change, pollution, ocean acidification, destructive fishing practices; are putting pressure on this essential ecosystem.
