Graphic textile

The text belongs to the famous textile artist Ruth Corcuera from the book: "Weavers of the quichua forests".

“Thousands of years ago, when only the voice recorded small and big events of every day life, women would cover their newborn child in a wrap. In this we see a space created between the mother´s womb and the world outside. We believe textiles were born from such gestures, within the realm of feelings and from a women´s view: to protect, to give warmth and to sustain livfe. In time, textile art will be the means to tell us through colours and designs that the world can be read through symbols, as in a written text. In the great American cultures these symbols were a kind of lingua franca and textiles a major art with many roles, among them to express that where words did not suffice. ”

This artwork will be exhibited in the National Textile Art Showin the Palais de Glace, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Weaving dreams I

"A story is unfold, and from it, thousands of pieces florish.
Some of them are truly works of art. Save them!
Preserve them with love because with love they were weaved.
In the future they will become part of some other fabric.
Keep on weaving and do not ask about them.
There will come a time to unfold them.
Just for today, do not think, weave, weave, weave.
Weave like crazy, weave with tears,
Weave with laughter, weave while screaming,
Weave with anger, weave with euphoria.
Weave words and good dreams.
Do not get discouraged… keep on weaving
Somewhere you will find the pattern.

Minimum gestures

"She recalled her dad.
Took a deep breath,
exhaling the air very slowly
Till her lungs were empty.
That minimum inherited gesture
brought her back to serenity
and recovered her from the hustle and bustle,
Renewing her energies."

Andean Blanket

“In recent paintings...the idea of emptiness is of special importance... . There is no doubt that art and poetry, not only contemporary, but of all times, reach their highest points when they achieve to penetrate magically... in that pattern of the plane and the emptiness from which all is made and which shows us the sense of nature”

The pictures I'm going to paint will last
For men not born to scan,
I don't need any to show me how,
Or change my drawing, then or now,
The man doesn't paint who would like to paint,
But the man, I guess, that can
