Paper is a thin surface, a versatile material with many usages. It can be a support for variable mediums as paper is easy to transport and store become a sight for study and development and can be used as a vehicle for dreams. Paper Trail focuses on works on paper by seven Latinx artists presenting paintings  drawings, each which explore and manipulate the materiality of paper itself. Participating artists Carlos Chavez, Alexis Mendoza, Rebecca Mendoza, Naivy Perez, Calero Rodriguez, Antonio Tovar, and Miguel Trelles emerged during the 1990s, when an interest in everyday materials and nontraditional processes fueled a desire to reinvestigate and redeploy some of the most familiar or humble mediums, including paper. The project presents work on paper produced by Latin American artists associated with figurative, abstract, and experimental. The examination of a broad array of artworks by these creative practitioners, reveals distinctive bodies of production that are personal and varying, while being as diverse as the artists are innovative.
