sometimes i see certain artwork and wish desperately that i was the one who created it. and i'm glad i'm not the only one who feels this way! in fact, the jealous curator has based her whole brand around artwork envy. the drawing, collage and embroidery work of ana teresa barboza makes me feel both intrigued and uncomfortable.
for obvious reasons i've been very body conscious lately - not in a bad way. i have a very heightened awareness of physical changes and feelings (including emotional/mental). it's hard for me to ascertain what barboza is trying to express with her work as i can only find a blog in a different language. i do like the feeling of empowerment these women have over their bodies. i don't know whether they are stitching themselves together or pulling themselves apart, but i admire the ability to be in control either way.
