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.
