ANA TERESA BARBOZA
Born in Lima, Perú in 1980, she lives and works in her native city. She studied painting in the Faculty of Art at Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PCUP). After having specialised in Painting at the Art Faculty of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, Ana Teresa attended pattern designing courses at the Mod’Art International School of Paris (2007) and the Sofia Cenzano School of Lima (2009). These experiences gave her the tools that allowed her to grasp the concept of the human body and create her own interpretation.
Her first collection “Animales Familiares” (Familiar Animals) is structured around a human body, cut, reconstructed and embellished through the intervention of stitching and embroidery. Upon seeing her work, it is difficult to distinguish the boundaries between the human and the animal : both appearing to be as much bestial as fragile.
