Through a variety of supports – painting, installation, sculpture and photography – Karla Leyva works with materials that come from the cosmetic and wellness industry, such as face mask and makeup; as well as organic matter, and tools used in the field of photography, film and video, such así tripiés and stage lighting. In her pieces the plasticity and constant transformation are evident, establishing a paradox between our desires for permanence and the undisputed triumph of our corporeity.
Leyva was part of the SOMA Educational Program and is currently a member of the National System of Art Creators. She has exhibited her work in Colombia, Los Angeles, London, Paris and México City, where she currently lives.
