Inspired by a story by Aranzazu De Isusi Zubía called “Canto de Júbilo” from her book “Deseo y otras realidades” (Longing and other realities / Sehnsucht und andere Wirklichkeiten). In fact I read the story a couple of days after I painted the image, but the story fitted so perfectly my painting that I started having doubts about having finished the painting before reading the story.
The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition 2012 (Theme: Thread and surface / Title: Sempre Legato)
About this sketchbook project
The dolls’ parts were carefully assembled with needle and thread. I used one unique thread to sew all dolls – the thread runs throughout the whole sketchbook, binding the dolls’ limbs with the rest of the body and at the same time binding each story with the next one.
