ANATOMIC EMBROIDERY BY JUANA GOMEZ

Santiago, Chile based artist Juana Gómez uses weaving and embroidery to explore themes of genealogy, mythology and biology in her own female lineage. She embroiders the central nervous system over faded photographs of the human body. After printing her photos on fabric, she goes in with a needle and thread and stitches veins, musculature, and neural pathways that flow together in a harmonious network.

Through a profound process of performance which is born of her own appearance, she works through transfer, re-contextualizing its value. Through the interaction of different systems of appropriation and reinterpretation, her body changes from a translucent and directly visual experience into a philosophical reading. The final result resembles a subtle drawing or painting, because of the faint but accurate impression of her body in the raw weave of the fabric, but carries the accuracy of the inherent processes that characterize photography.

MANSQUID was the first “X-Ray Drawing” Nychos ever attempted to do. He says ” I thought it would be funny to add bones since squids don’t have bones and I also enjoyed adding a human element to it as well.”

HUMAN EXPLOSION is based on his recent work, more exemplary of the new murals in SF. “There’s not much to say about the exploding human, except that it’s much easier show the entire human by using an exploded view and while doing this you might as well add some motion to make it look like an actual exploding human.”
