Ana Teresa Barboza Gubo is a Peruvian contemporary embroidery artist. Her work exposes the parallel processes of nature and craft. In Ana’s work, paintings full of threads become a storm of feelings. Through her unique mix of media, she creates a flow of body tissues. She provokes intense feelings from the human body, through the sheet of paper. Observing a needle wedged in skin, the observer feels an uncomfortable recognition of familiar moments of pain. The artist incorporates flora and fauna, guiding the human being back to the wilderness.Ana’s knitting brings us closer to nature. She proposes a transformation of organic structure in order to continue what nature has already begun, but always respecting its inherent flux.
