Embroidered photos

In the same way that Dutch painters in the 17th century learned to represent the effect of light on objects, the transformation of bodies that inexorably takes place before our eyes at such a slow pace that we think we are looking at still scenes, the objects, in my embroidered images extracted from the real world, are pulled for a moment out of the flow of time.

The red wool yarn helps them and takes care of them, where I see their weaknesses. The altar, like a relic, contains them. Frames are not an optional extra, they too take care of that portion of the world represented in the photos. That’s why I designed them specially and I never take a photo without a frame. In fact, the images are the things themselves.
