Chilean artist Jose Romussi creates intricate collages merging embroidery with photographs. The Berlin-based artist explains his work here on Mauger Modern:
â€œMy work is a constant search to be able to express and represent my ideas. I know there is more that what is tangible and visible and I do not think everything has been done. Therefore, I am constantly exploring and discovering new techniques and materials. I want to give a new perspective to things that already exist and give a moment in time in the present to whatever has already been forgotten. I am interested on stitching the past and the present: all surfaces are penetrable.â€
And also here in Fine Print Magazine:
â€œI was using painting in the beginning to represent my ideas like edible aniline. But I wasnâ€™t happy with the result. I didnâ€™t study art, so I started experimenting with different materials and surfaces until I found my own style through the embroidery technique. I did an interpretation with embroidery by chance in one of my paintings, and it felt more like my own style than the painting by itself.â€
