Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza is a master of embroidery, creating lively landscapes with spatters of sea water and rich green moss that wind down the wall and blur the boundary between tapestry and sculpture.
Barboza interprets and revives embroidery in a highly original way. Although she mainly focuses on the human body, her Suspension series explores our connection with nature.
“Both embroidery and crocheting are techniques that require time. I use these techniques in order to make a connection between manual work and the processes of nature; creating thread structures similar to the structures that make a plant for example,“ Barboza told Le Fil Conducteur. “My aim is to create pieces of work that simulates experiments, aiming to reconstruct nature, teaching us to have a new and fresh look at it.“
