carolina: humana, peruvian based in brooklyn. The compelling force of my work is the challenge
it takes to embody the relations between
processes that take place both in the micro and the macro cosmos; the inner and the outer
Community enabled catharsis through the repetition of small acts that are cumulative yet transient
and for a greater good. Good citizens save a certain type of plastic from the waste stream and that
plastic I then weave into a matrix.
I produce interdisciplinary work based in tapestry, sculpture and painting. I investigate themes of
human interdependence and the "weight" of personality. My pieces often call viewers into an
individual relationship to the works.
I employ traditional lace making to render protective structures laced from thread and rope; as well as unconventional embroidery to create works on paper representing interior spaces and the outdoor paths leading to those spaces.
