21 x 18 “Acrylic & airbrush with resin on canvas
Liesl Cotta De Souza

My enduringly impeccable works have evolved from childhood influences and art school education which have been directed into a totally focused way of life.

The surfaces in my works flow, as my thoughts wander around the subject; they are stitched as if I am drawing. As for my work I maintain drawing as an integral part of my work and use the process of creating the pictorial surface by stitching with thread on fabric. Considering the vastness of the task of building up an area with stitches, to me is a necessary and fascinating process. Indeed here is no doubt that my artistic achievement in stitched paintings equals or surpasses much that is applauded as fine art. In spite it is ironic that I have succeeded in simply adding to the riches of an alternative expression to this initial pursuit.
