Juana Gómez Embroidered Self Portraits

We love the gorgeous mixed-media embroideries of artist Juana Gómez. Based on her own photographic image and 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 its body in the raw weave of the fabric, but carries the accuracy of the inherent processes that characterize photography.

Thus, the final image obtained carries not only the photographic but also the autobiographic.
