Statement : 

My embroidery and drawing practice focusses in real figures and situations that we all unconsciously create to describe our personality. Analyzing our surrounding, objects and actions is the best way to know who we are. I can find myself very close to figurative commercial art, but on the other hand a conceptual ideas are helping me to make a deep analysis of my personal path shown through specific objects and compositions. Some Pop influences reveal on the loneliness of the objects and bright colors. Mainly I represent what visually attracts my eyes, like my embroidered faces series that I was following my fascination of facial shapes and expressions, with the challenge of using classic embroidery materials and techniques but in a contemporary way.

Passion
"Passion" is an embroidered reinterpretation of a photo from an Italian photographer from the 90's. When we see photos sometimes is difficult to see the reality of the moment of the shot, thats why photographers are great, to capture the instant. I wanted to not just to make a reinterpretation with my own technique but think as a real life situation happening in front of me, looking through the eyes and the camera of the photographer, and capturing the moment my own way. So I took what I thought was important to show the feelings, the movement and the posture of the model, from the original photo. The original photo, a model with a sexy pose with her hands on her hair, was printed in black and white, I also decided to use two colors, red and white; I see a lot of freedom and passion on the photo thats why I decided to use bright red instead, and use the black for the background, to reinforce the subject. I am doing a step backwards in history of portraits, before the invention of photography, a painted, sculpted, or drawn portrait, was the only way to represent a person, it used to take a long time to analyze and immortalized it, embroidering a portrait made me think on each stitch I do to record the appearance of the human subject. A portrait intended to achieve a good likeness of the sitter, but from the 19th century artists start to give a personal touch of creativity to them, and thats what I am doing on my collection of embroidered portraits and faces, I have made the human face a point of my work. And it is not just a portrait but a way of expression. I think is important to remember and do tribute, a woman expressing passion with freedom in front of a camera, which was not that obvious, with out being censored and considered porn. I am not even representing hair or parts of the body, but still you can tell its a woman. The technique I use is a traditional embroidery technique that his origins are in India but is currently used in the french couture houses, so it is interesting for me to make a contemporary piece with an ancient technique used in a modern way, each stitch is a new direction instead of following straight lines or geometrical perfect shapes like in the classic embroideries.

The Limit
“The Limit”, the dyptique. The Andy Warhol face embroidered in gold materials on the layer underneath when the dyptique is closed, and a the layer on top, an embroidered hole with the same shape as the head done with black materials that make a transition from gold to black. I make a reflection about how out of control, we, social animals, can be in our lives, with the social media. We are unique beings (gold), but then there is a layer we create around us, with a limited area that we can control (the top layer turning from gold to black). The piece can be seen open or closed. Its like an sculpture, that puts you in debate of where is the person, in the filled or in the empty layer. Beads and sequins from 2 to 5 mm make the piece even challenging.

DayDream
“DayDream”, It’s a reverie of peace and freedom. I started while quarantine with out embroidery materials and tools with me at all. I was out of the studio, so I had to made a new frame and start rethinking with what I could create a new embroidery. I collected plastic objects and cut them in small pieces and decided that they would define my texture and colors. Bottles, containers, cleaning gloves, gardening tools, inner tube of a bike.. new up-cycled materials by crumbling them for my artwork. To construct my frame I got some woods and old fabrics . The subject I wanted to embroidery was myself, I was feeling strange, and the only real think that I knew was that my body actually exists. So I decided to make a design of myself in a fetal position, a posture where all we have been, a resting position. The body, talks. In front of the pain the body closes and takes refuge, the same way in front of happiness the body opens and extended the arms and legs to spread the energy. Coronavirus its been tough for humanity, painful and sad, and I've been very close to my inner and I know it will take time to reopen myself again. Its a self-portrait outdoors laying in a peaceful garden with a calm swimming pool while an eternal sunset, a recreation of a surreal situation for me at that moment The technique I use is a very old embroidery technique that his origins are in India but is currently used in the french and italian couture houses, so it is interesting for me to make a contemporary piece with an ancient technique used in a modern way. Instead of following straight lines or geometrical perfect shapes each stitch has a new direction. I found texture inspiration in Roman Mosaics, while them, with pieces of marble gave a huge range of natural colors; I gave texture with thousand of cut pieces from different materials applied with Tambour hook. I worked with a day life situation but with a huge range of dreamy and surrealist colors.

Salt in the mirror
I made "Salt in the mirror" in Italy during the period of the Corona Virus quarantine, I decided to move to the home town of my boyfriend, an old Italian country house, there I found this fabulous plastic objects from the 60's and I decided to reproduce them. In this drawing it was still the very beginning of the Social Distancing and I was seeing myself reflected on the mirror like the lonely glass and plastic salt container. All this objects where defining me and my emotional state of mind. I can find myself here very close to figurative commercial art, but on the other hand a conceptual ideas are helping me to make a deep analysis of my personal path shown through specific objects and compositions.

Plastic objects on the table
"Plastic Objects on the table" was done during the first period of my Quarantine in Italy because the Corona Virus, I decided to move to the home town of my boyfriend, an old Italian country house, there I found this fabulous plastic objects from the 60's and I decided to reproduce them. I can find myself here very close to figurative commercial art, but on the other hand a conceptual ideas are helping me to make a deep analysis of my personal path shown through specific objects and compositions. This scenario is not random at all, I want to reflect melancholy and loneliness, quiet composition, but placed in a way that objects vibrate due to their proximity.
