The alias Sra.D (Ms. X) stands as a complaint against the loss of identity of women upon marriage, automatically leaving their surname to acquire their husbands. It's something that happens in many countries, establishing itself as something implicit in marriage. Through her work, Ms. X seeks to represent all those women who seek emancipation. Nobody's women.

The work of Ms. X, a.k.a Lara Padilla, covers disciplines such as paint, sculpture, dance, , performance, cinema and fashion design.

Her mostly figurative pieces draw attention to the power of female representation through the deformation of the body and the use of colors and textures. Gernder empowerment is exhibited through large hands as powerful instruments of battle or heavy feet, an image of the perseverance of women in their historic struggle. Ms.X understands art, not as a silent showcase, but as a path of action and political intervention.

Her aesthetic is an ode to diversity, portraying all types of bodies in order to promote a look of equality and authenticity.

Her performances dialogue face to face with her pictorial and sculptural creations through the similarity between compositions and trajectories. The use of body painting underlines the plastic aspect of her choreographies, while in her urban actions she insists on reflecting the impliciteness of a conceived identity. The female body is not a prison for Ms. X. In her latest creations she has expanded her artistic horizons exploring African and pre-Columbian art, cultural chapters of great social and conceptual significance such as Genesis or the interaction of bodies with new supports and textures.

Graduated in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Master in Film Photography Direction from the TAI School, she is a multidisciplinary artist that uses paint, sculpture, dance, performance, cinema and fashion as means of artistic expression. She combines texture with movement, canvases and clothing to travel between different social and professional contexts.

Her art has participated in individual and group exhibitions at national and international level, such as in the museum "Museo de Zapadores de Madrid"  (November 2020, Madrid) or "Art Basel Miami" (January - July 2019, Miami).

Her fascination for fashion eventually led her to work with clients such as Springfield, Pepe Jeans or Levis. She also actively collaborates with Patricia Field, the stylist of series such as "Sex In The City" or "The Devil wears Prada" for her project Patricia Field Art Fashion, designing unique hand-painted garments.
