fluid landscapes.

textile artist ana teresa barboza is creating these fluid, textural, sculptural landscapes, literally spilling out of embroidery hoops...
the fabulous blog/magazine anthology really nailed it in describing ana teresa's work: "it's especially interesting how she frames each piece. for instance, the way her landscapes and seascapes pour forth from embroidery hoops-as though she is giving a nod to the more traditional art form of needlework while also turning the process on its head." exactly.

it's sort of hard to take your eyes off of these pieces, and i'm not sure if it's because of the skilled needlework and color palettes that literally build up these landscapes, or if it's the very fluid nature of the threads, the almost dissolving nature of the images. one thing is for sure, they are original and interesting. enjoy!
