Consuelo Manrique


Manrique’s work remains, amid all its vitality and potency, exquisite, engulfing the magic of what is feminine. It embodies a femininity that is furious and courageous without ceasing to be delicate. The art of sewing and embroidering are featured in her pieces; they refer to the patience and the care that a healing process requires. On several occasions, the canvas and paper are torn to then be repaired using needle and thread, emulating the sutures that stitch together a wound.
