Trazos II,III,IV&V // Embroidered canvas
These embroidered canvas belongs to a serie of hand-embroidered fabrics with different compositions, dimensions and applications. The drawings are designed as a reference to the brush strokes used to decorate Iberian ceramics. These spontaneous and free strokes are a way to leave a mark on what we do, to leave a little of ourselves.
On ceramics, this task was normally performed by the potter’s wife, who used a small wooden square to which she tied different brushes to trace the decoration with horizontal, straight or wavy stripes. In this case, the silk fabric is worked as a canvas on which the design of the strokes is hand embroidered. The technique used to make them, it’s the same with which Manila’shawls (a traditional Spanish garment) are made, so that the drawing is visible on both sides of the fabric.
Woven fabrics from industrial waste.
