The artificer’s joy | 2012



These embroideries bring together treasured possessions: the Irish linen I inherited from my father; the silk thread given to me by the proprietress of a haberdashery (given that she foretold artistic potential); and, finally, the French knot, a stitch I learned from the embroiderers of a carioca cooperative.

  • Irish linen, silk thread
  • 60 x 35 x 10 cm (each piece)
  • EXHIBITIONS:“Errático, errante,” Galeria Inox, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
