Piscina, 2021

Handmade warp-painted tapestry with a beautiful palette of ivory and multiple shades of blue ranging from light slate blue to a deeper dark blue. This piece is displayed horizontally, woven in two sections that were pieced together after weaving. The hand-painted warp extends on either end as a beautiful fringe hanging down the sides.

Via the artist:

"I started weaving this piece at the beginning of the quarantine in New York. Like everyone I was feeling all the uncertainty but also feeling really homesick. I always found the refraction of light on the water surface super fascinating and calming- my parent's house in Portugal has a pool and I like to sit with my legs in the water just observing. That image of the pool surface was something that kept coming back to me, so I decided to weave myself a pool. I think there is something really beautiful about this idea of soft portable “pools”. I’m excited to continue exploring this series.
