The Soft Hand






The Soft hand is a crochet sculpture in kasmerino wool, 170x55 cm.

Textiles, more than my photographic or collage works, are for me the vehicle to express more intimate and emotional contents.

This hand is feminine: in the colors, white and pink, in being warm and soft, comforting, caring, emotional, all characteristics associated with women. Yet her being out of her measure makes her dissonant, disturbing, frightening instead of attracting, a bit disturbing.
