Catalogue Note

In the group of Lienzos ceremoniales, I wanted color to be a sharp, endless line in three-dimensional space. To do this, I loaded each cotton fiber with coats of gesso and paint. The woven layers of all these lines create a dense, penetrable, volume of color...these are ceremonial garments for one to become intensely aware of color.  Olga de Amaral
