Pamela Catalina Hurtado Wedler (Guayaquil, 1962) is an Ecuadorian painter and plastic artist of German descent. Her work, both pictorial and sculptural, is characterized by showing the problems and experiences that women go through on a daily basis. Between 1975 and 1977, she participated in the Art Workshops in Cologne, Germany. Until 1994, she participated in six collective exhibitions, in addition to two more individual exhibitions in her hometown, in 1994 and 1995.
His works have a trajectory similar to that of his own life; it is not in vain that his irruption in art took place after a personal tragedy. Over the years, her artistic production took a great leap forward after her visit to East Germany, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Pamela Hurtado says she has fourteen years of experience in the visual arts, the artist from Guayaquil assures that her main and constant theme has been women. “My work is a social denunciation against those who do not respect or value the importance of the female gender. There are women who are housewives or domestic employees and with the low salary they earn or the little love they receive from their family is a way to denigrate them,” says the painter.
Her works have been presented in the Dominican Republic, the United States, Argentina, Spain and Paraguay.
