Lima, Peru based artist Ana Teresa Barboza creates landscapes and other imagery that exists in the space between tapestry and sculpture using embroidery, yarn, and wool. Emulating the flow of waves or grass, each piece breaks out of its embroidery hoop and tumbles down the wall upon which it is being displayed.

Both embroidery and crocheting are techniques that require time. I use these techniques in order to make a connection between manual work and the processes of nature; creating thread structures similar to the structures that make a plant for example.” Ana Teresa Barboza
