My name is Paulina and I am an artist, painter, and filmmaker. I spent 20 years living in New York, having studied at NYU and Columbia and gotten my BFA in Directing from the School of Visual Arts. For seven years I worked within the New York independent film scene doing art direction, set design, and set decoration, while also dedicating time to painting. The city has left on me a permanent mark of the creator's sweat and a hunger for space, the ocean, and the mountains.
The urge for space led to me relocating to Detroit for the next three years where I worked at the first ever Museum of Light, Video, and Multimedia, Kunsthalle Detroit, as the curator and overseer of installations. I had the pleasure of showing artwork by Bill Viola, Joan Jonas, Ange Leccia, Sebastian Diaz Morales, Mark Handforth, Marco Brambilla and many other internationally renowned artists. After a series of unfortunate events that could only be attributed to the inevitable return of saturn, I left the metropolis to open the next chapter of my life.
The City of Angels greeted me warmly; I took a one way flight from Berlin in 2014 and started my work the next day on the beautiful Tejon Ranch for Anonymous Content. The next months followed with fruitful days working with clients like AT&T, Toyota, VW, Fidelity, Nissan, and Amazon to name a few, with teams of some of the most talented production designers and directors in the world.
My feature film experience includes working with one of the founding fathers of conceptual art, Lawrence Weiner, on his film Dirty Eyes; production designer Kelly McGehee and cinematographer Bobby Bukowski on Time Out of Mind directed and starring Richard Gere & Jena Malone and written by Oren Moverman (Rampart, The Messenger, I’m Not There); Reaching for the Moon directed by Bruno Barreto; production designer Yvette Granata on Swim Little Fish Swim directed by Ruben Amar and Lola Bessis; and Newlyweeds directed by Shaka King.
I live and work in Los Angeles.
