Ana Teresa Barboza uses embroidery and knitting to compliment her graphite illustrations, creating a parallel between the process of manual crafts and drawing. Barboza's imagery is just as astounding as her process, depicting scenes of women kissing lions and people embracing among a milieu of the natural and sewn. This work is an incredible exercise in creating hybrids, challenging the strictures of contemporary content and the purpose of certain artisan crafts.

We have posted the work of Ana Teresa Barboza before and came across some more of her embroidery art this morning. Her combination of embroidery and mixed media makes for an almost 3D experience!
Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 29, 2013
We have had an affinity for embroidery art over the years, with our Handmade Art book heavy on the medium. When we came across Ana Teresa Barboza's mixed media, embroidery art this past evening, we loved the combination of mediums made for an almost 3D experience. We like to say adult-themed, because you rarely see a little loving between the sheets down with a needle and thread, threading the needle, or however you want to say it.
