Untitled (embroided blueprint, Brasillia; Camaçari, Bahia)
Red / Blue
22 x 25 cm
embroided textile with Ipé frame
Drawings made during the residency in Camaçari, Bahia were interpreted by an embroidery program that translates the gestures into a consistent organization of stitches and repetition of lines. These sketches for Brasillia are framed in a sculpted plank of solid Ipé, a local tropical hardwood. The stretched textile is embedded in the wood, as to make room for the drawing.
