Ana Teresa Barboza creates poignant vignettes using an unlikely combination of thread, photo transfer and graphite on canvas. Focusing on isolated, nude subjects, Barboza uses the embroidery aspect of her work to describe the characters’ inner pain. They pull on the threads, exposing their internal organs with contemplative gazes. The embroidered entrails create rich patterns that complement the baroque flourishes Barboza uses for her backgrounds. Take a look at some of her work below.
