Transparencies 2

Updated: Nov 3, 2019


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, infinite number of shades, textures and colours. I make stitched drawings using recycled fabrics collected and preserved with the only intention of cutting, layering and stitching them in a way that aims to capture light, contrast and depth. The tactile contrasts obtained by the graphic stitched lines and the source materials that I use, like the organza, translate the essential drive and inspiration of my current artwork."
