I have created a family of cacti inspired nont only by nature but also by the work of some Women Artists.
The crochet makes me, in some way, heiress of the tradition of generations of (fe)male work. A work that was not valued by the History of Art but it was more related to the Arts & Crafts.
This tradition was rediscovered by the artists of the Bauhaus and some avant-gardes artists who went to the States (like Josef & Anni Albers).
So these cacti are an hommage to these women artists who fought in a world of men to have their place in Art.
