Tiziana Tateo

Fiber Artist

Home

As a fiber artist I have always enjoyed the process of experimenting with different techniques and materials in order to find out new exciting outcomes.

My love for colours and texture led me working with several types of media such as paint, paper, fabric and plastic, which are usually the starting points from which I develop themes and subjects.

I am adventurous in the use of materials and colours, often combining a variety of techniques like printing, stitching, burning and embroidering, to create depth in my textile works.

I work intuitively and spontaneously most of the time, although I sometimes have a clear idea of where I want the piece to go.

The concept of my work is often dictated by the title of the exhibition I want to enter or by the materials I have at hand at the moment.

Figures are common in my works because of the feelings, emotions and dialogue they convey. Like no other subject matter, the figure has the ability to speak to the viewer in an extremely intimate manner.
