ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
As my art evolves, I wanted to make it more accessible for people. Being able to afford art is something that is of a luxury. For a long time, I, an artist myself, wasn’t able to afford any art either. But it doesn’t have to be! I wanted to create a series of prints that show all the detail and effort that goes into an embroidered piece without it being unaffordable. One of a kind of art is great, and it is something I will continue doing, but there is also beauty in being able to create pieces that more than one person can experience at a time. I hope this piece makes you feel connected to a community and to a place that signifies something to me and to other people that purchase this print.
The pieces I’ve selected to do as prints also have an extreme amount of detail and nuanced color variations. When you increase the scale, you can appreciate it even more. They are all printed in a 310 gsm textured paper, and to the naked eye it is hard to tell that there is actually no yarn in them, I assure you that you will feel compelled to touch them. As with my one of a kind pieces, I hope these prints fill your house with love, curiosity and good vibes above all.
ABOUT THIS PRINT
This photography was taken in Cartagena, Colombia at San Felipe’s castle which was built by the Spanish to protect the bay. This embroidered photography was done for someone special and since this place means so much to both of us, I wanted to create a printed edition of it.
Where do we belong? Is it a physical space, or one that resides with the ones we love? This series explores that question and a constant struggle to fit between two places: Brooklyn and Bogota. An immigrant’s journey to discover her identity, collective memories, and a journey woven together with photographs and thread.
At the moment, I am doing limited edition runs. Original prints will be available in my shop while supplies last.
