CREATORS – Paola Gracey

In ALL, CREATORS by Julia Krolik

Name: Paola Gracey

Which came first in your life, the science or the art?

Art, always excelled in it at a young age.

Which sciences relate to your art practice?

My degree is in Chemistry. Chemistry is everything to me and it’s my muse. I incorporate it in my artwork whether I add chemical structures of things I’ve worked or researched, experimenting with different mediums, carrying out basic chemistry, documenting experiment details and all observations so that I may replicate the physical and chemical conditions in order to accomplish my artistic goals.
