EMBROIDERED METAL… pleasure

EMBROIDERED METAL… pleasure

The fact that she is also an artist allows Barbara Abaterusso to come up with daring ideas that anyone else might balk at. The artist thinks of a rigid and cold material like metal and in its place imagines something soft and warm, like wool. The female in this case performs a dance, her warmth enveloping the metal that welcomes this gesture of love by allowing the engraving to do its work. Barbara Abaterusso begins by creating designs inspired by antique lace, drills holes in the metal sheet creating different patterns. The tactile sensation of hot and cold is irresistible, the object crying out to be touched, the ensuing perception one of intense pleasure.
