Needle Felting. It is a technique that involves wool and needles. My canvans is made of black wool felt. The wool is 100% roving Merino because of its softness, shine and breathability. Roving wool comes from washed carded wool. During this process the scales of the wool are oriented in the same direction.
The needle has tiny barbs on the end, when the needle is stubbed into the wool the burbs pull the wool in but not back out again. The wool fibers are locked into a position. It is not just one or two fibers that are locked but literally thousands of fibers.
About the Artist: I am an Italian artist and graphic designer who lives and works in Bristol. I have a passionate Italian history, mainly in Liguria, with personal and collective exhibitions. I have started a new figurative path of experimentation of with unusual materials and techniques such as needle felting.
"Creativity has been an essential part of my life for as long as I can remember, even as a child. I have always loved colours in whatever expression or display. I have chosen to work as an artist and designer mainly with fabric and wool. Wool is my paint tube and needles are my brushes. I am fascinated by how light affects colour in different environments; whether the light is in a natural setting outdoors or indoors.
I consider endlessly fascinating the interplay between light, colour and environment and I am constantly exploring and trying to capture its infinite variations".
