Cascading Threads of Wonder

Cascading Threads of Wonder magnificently woven by Ana Teresa Barboza take embroidery out of domesticity and into the realm of Art, while they also posit innovative concepts about sculpture.

“I don’t think I make much of a distinction between the ‘real’ and the ‘fantastic’. They both seem to be threads in the same cloth...” stated Alice Hoffman, an American novelist and young-adult and children’s writer, about her work. She is best known for her 1996 novel “Practical Magic”, which was adapted for a film with the same name in 1998. Now, this could perfectly apply to Ana Teresa Barboza’s beguiling textile artwork.
