Delightful Discoveries: Ana Teresa Barboza's Landscape Embroidery Art

Ever since discovering the amazing diversity of embroidery art out there in the wide world of the interwebs, I've been fascinated by the new movement of hobbyists and artists who have embraced the medium. Taylor Swift, who recently gifted the adorable Ed Sheeran with an embroidered scene of the two of them with a Drake lyric scrawled beneath, has also brought new-found love and attention to the craft (it's adorable, just click through).

When I came upon the Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza on Pinterest, I was stunned with her ability to actively create and capture natural landscape scenes with cross stitch and embroidery. Her art, which can be seen in it's entirety here, is almost frightfully real for being crated only from needle and thread. Her landscapes seemingly jump off the fabric, and then literally do as well, creating structures that both depict the natural processes in image and then live them outside their own borders.

Check out all of her work which explores the human body and wildlife, combined with the incredible beauty of embroidery. She gives a very interesting in-depth interview on Common Thread, which is definitely worth a read.

The work of Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza covers many loves for me, namely textiles and art. Her sculptural creations include landscapes, seascapes, florals, and portraits. Barboza uses needlework, knitting, and crochet techniques that yield a wonderful texture. Whether it’s a grassy knoll or the current of the ocean, her textiles capture movement and emotion. It’s especially interesting how she frames each piece. For instance, the way her landscapes and seascapes pour forth from embroidery hoops—as though she is giving a nod to the more traditional art form of needlework while also turning the process on its head. - See more at: http://anthologymag.com/blog3/2014/06/24/textile-art-by-ana-teresa-barboza/#sthash.5qk6PCHf.
