Ni contigo, ni sin ti
Ni contigo, ni sin ti (not with or without you) is an acrylic on canvas painting by Chilean artist Camila Paz.
‘My constant search for expansion and knowledge brought me to Australia.
Here, I began to dedicate myself to my true passion: painting. Living in Naarm has allowed me to broaden my perspective of the world by meeting other artists. It was also the beginning of a process of self-search and empowerment as an artist and as a migrant woman.
‘Since 2019, my work has been exhibited in different spaces. I had a solo exhibition at Bendigo Bank Carlton in 2021 and a recent solo exhibition at Brunswick Street Gallery. I was also a finalist for the SBS Portrait Prize in 2021 and the Doyles Art Award 2022.
‘I also was given a grant from the Sustaining Creative Workers Initiative 2021 to develop my artistic practice. This included two workshops with Melbourne’s community and the organisation SisterWorks. This also encouraged me to start a series of new art workshops for adults and children, which is what I’m currently working on.’
