My personal research is focused on the expressive possibilities textiles have from a theoretical, poetic and artistic point of view. I explore the limits between Art, Craft and Design.
I personally view as textile structures that build layers.
If you think about it there are thousands of unseen of symbolic and touchable layers that make up the visible world. The inside of our bodies create our organs, the skin retains these organs and the clothes we wear are the layers we choose collectively, creating a human society lives in a big hich planetary ecological system. I would like to dive in to the micro and macro weft to admire and share the details of this reality.
