Linen portraits intricately threaded with cotton veins by Juana Gómez
Katy Cowan, Creative Boom
“The central nervous system plays a somewhat pivotal role in these beautiful works by Juana Gómez. Forming part of her Constructal series, they consist of photographs of people printed on linen or cotton, which are then hand embroidered to add veins in various colours. ‘My work arises from the observation of nature and the processes that determine how both living beings and the inorganic world are structured and built,’ explains the artist.”
