El arte del plegado

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

I think that folding a piece of cloth a piece of art can be created, and that’s what I do: Art works with fabric. It is my intention to investigate and evolve new ways of pleating. I use the fabric as architectonic material, building an architecture of pleats with no cuts or seams.

INSPIRATION

My inspiration is the study of pattern making, mathematics and geometry expressed in different means and techniques. I try to represent the passage of time and the old age. I’m passionate about fabric and the multiple shapes that may arise from a pleate. I combibe traditional methods with contemporary aesthetics.

MATERIALS USED

Fold after fold, hour after hour, they pass by to be materialized into art works made of hand dyed cotton organza, which at times is being interlined with paper lining to give it more consistence.
