Embroidery is a real skill, I think, it requires a dedication to small detail and pricking your figures. A lot. Most completed embroidery pieces look fab but this artist is pushing the boundaries – pushing them out of the frame actually.
Perú-based artist Ana
Teresa Barboza has created a collection of embroidered
artworks that extend beyond their frames.
She uses a mixture of yarn, thread, wool and fabric to create landscapes and ocean scenes that cascade and flow towards the audience.
Apart from exploring nature, her works incorporates fragments of human forms, plants and animals by depicting “motion, texture, and human emotions that radiate out from the colorful stitching”.
