Dreaming Varo

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

My work does not try to transgress. It tries to find beauty into the simplicity of garments. It is feminine and delicate. The use of handicraft materials becomes an essential elemant so that the observer can withhold the design in his mind.

INSPIRATION

Inspired by the paintings of the Spanish-Mexican surrealist painter Remedios Varo. “The creation of the birds”, a lecture about human dreams, detachment of the body and the landing of the pigeons.

MATERIALS USED

Materials show contrasts: rigid againts smooth, fragile against violent, and romantic against grotesque. Textiles like cotton and shantugs of silk. Goat´s skin, crochet bathed in plaster cast painting, tulle and lamb´s nappa.
