Noelia Towers is a Chicago based artist born and Raised in Barcelona.

 

She makes paintings that come from very personal experiences like her chronic illness and the relationship between pain and pleasure, in most instances using herself as the subject, in an effort to learn how to exist in a permanently sick body that conditions her well being. Her work is also a way of healing from trauma by creating images that come from a dark place and turning them into something empowering.
