Acrylic, Embroidery and Aguayo cloth on Natural Linen Canvas
50 x 40 cm
The Andean Fantasy series of paintings are inspired by the cultural manifestations of the original Andean peoples, as part of a personal research on the symbolic language of textiles and ceramics inherited by our ancestors. These elements are fused in my work with patterns, shapes and colours from the constant exploration of my own narrative expression, and my own identity.
Andean Fantasy 9 is a mixed media painting. Painted mainly in acrylic on a refined natural linen canvas, I have added a piece of an Andean cloth called Aguayo and hand made embroidery.
