Ana Teresa Barboza

Ana Barboza is an artist based in Lima, Peru, and studied painting in PCUP. She experimented with embroidery at first with images of the human body, then expanded on into using embroidery as decorative patterns and camouflage. In her biography, she explains mostly of where her ideas start, and where they will continue to go. As of now, she is interested in the human body in relations to garments and animals with behavior. The pieces that I am most interested in, she does incredibly detailed embroidery of landscapes and plants. Her compositions start of as traditional embroidery images, but them spill out of the frames. She creates these 2d images with thread, that then pulls in the viewer and make the 3d space a part of her pieces. The thread, however, isn’t just laid about tangled and a mess, Barboza is very intentional to how she places her thread outside of the frame, most of which are netted and weaved together  and placed in a fashion that almost mimics the way plants and nature would be naturally.
