A trip to the World of Threads exhibition 2018

And the Summer  days are almost gone...It's always a time for slowing down the work routine and letting other thing get in the way of the creative juices. 😉 But I've managed to keep drawing with stitching on top of layers of opacities and transparencies, as my...

I was recently rewriting my artist statement, and this was the result of days and days of hard thinking and strenuous, persistent focus on my computer screen! 😅💭🕚

"My work explores the relationship between transparencies and opacities and their successive,...

 Once again, I'm layering and layering and layering. This time I'm adding a layer of silk organza on top of each individual shape and colour, between each and every one of the cuts, and in doing this I'm creating even more transparencies and depth to the work. And on t...

Working on enlargements from previous works (in this case, Trapped IV)allows me to see them in another perspective and discover new ways of exploring them. With enlargements, I tend to saturate certain components like textures and colours, and make them the main focus...

After I finished Bulbus IV, the four enlargements were ready to be framed and join the other works from the Cells and Neurons series. In November I submitted my application to Spun!, an all textiles exhibition at the Illumine Gallery, in St. Thomas, Ontario, and it was...

 Layers and transparencies, big shapes, lots of texture and contrast colours, and so much fun playing with the free motion stitching on top of the layers! In this work I managed to only sew the red lines and nothing else, binding together all layers and shapes and allo...

I enlarged a second area of "Bulbus olfactorium" and this is the result: lots of layers, some texture added by breaking the fibres of the organza and thus creating another shade of grey, and free motion stitches in red thread to finish with a dramatic effect! I think t...

Enlarging specific areas of one of my works allows me to  further explore something that I always end up gravitating towards: the layers and textures of the different fabrics I choose and the satisfaction of  the free motion stitching lines that I create....

Zoom: to focus a camera or microscope on an object using a zoom lens so that the object's apparent distance from the observer changes. In this case, I zoomed in an area of my fibre work Bipolar cells and explored its textures, layers, lines and colours.

Mixed media and...

Trapped is my last mixed media series inspired by old photos, vintage lace, words, thoughts and dreams. My world as a child was always full of blue skies, wand

 The (un)usual collection of beautiful highway trees, this time with an emphasis on the Earth tones and pale blue skies. I took the photos on my way to the World of Threads Festival, in Oakville, two weeks ago. It was an unforgettable morning loaded with...

So pleased and excited to have ten of my works featured on "Crafted", at The ARTS Project Gallery, in London, Ontario. Just in time for Christmas! 

Wandering along a labyrinth of words, where every turn of the road leads to a world of anguish and sorrow. Always conditioned by what you know and what should be, having to make decisions, feeling divided and alone. And trying to see beyond the visible.
