WHY DON'T YOU RIP MY HEART OUT?

It's hard to take my eyes off of these beautiful works by Ana Teresa Barboza.

Born in Lima, Perú in 1980, she lives and works in her native city.

I’m interested in the different concepts one can arrive at by using clothing and embroidery as an artistic medium. An important part of my work revolves around the human body. At first, I used needlework and embroidery to fragment, recompose and decorate the human body. I worked with self-portraits; photographs printed on fabric that were later intervened with embroidery, and decorative patterns that served as camouflage.

 She studied painting in the Faculty of Art at Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PCUP).
