ana teresa barboza

Oh my word. So good!!! I wrote about another embroidery artist last week, and in the comments field someone {aka Kelsey from The Tarot Nook} suggested I take a look at the work of Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza. Yep. I loved it. I’m quite sure that an audible little ‘gasp’ snuck out of me when I clicked through to Ana Teresa’s site. Some of her work is so simple, and other pieces are incredibly complex – but all of them have so much feeling – and some of those feelings are pretty uncomfortable, especially in those last two pieces! Ouch.

    Hi Jealous Curator,
    I just stumbled upon more mixed media embroidery that you might like: I’ve sent you to her works page. From what I can tell, she operates entirely independently off of her Tumblr; if people want to buy her art, they simply email her. Pretty cool! I love this wave of weaving and stitching, the overt feminization of art and its indistinction from craft. Anyway, FYI. 🙂
    Take care,

    Annuities can have a bad reputation because of their often high fees and commissions and their dubious investment performance. But as with almost any other financial product you’ll buy, including other investments, there are both good annuities and bad annuities. The best annuities have a place , so don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. By doing your research, you can purchase annuities that are competitively priced with low fees and few bells and whistles that can drive up your costs.
