Acrylic and embroidery on natural linen canvas
This series of artworks are inspired in a feeling of calm, tranquility and being with and caring about ourselves. Moon bathing is an ancestral practice of exposing oneself on the light of the moon in an effort to drink in the cooling lunar energy.
In the other hand, The Calathea plants (native to tropical rainforest in South and Central America and the West Indies), symbolise a NEW BEGINNING. For this painting I have used acrylics, embroidery thread and natural linen canvas. I include embroidery in my works as a a tool for female empowerment and peaceful protest, I consider the embroidery as a space of freedom, introspection, self-knowledge and sisterhood.
