Bed Corona by Paola Prati

“Old world” wandering around the internet I came across a lovely site GLOBAL TEXTILE ARTS by Paula Prati, an Italian artist who lives in Palm Beach, Florida. Her macrame offerings have an ancient romanticism about them, particularly in her headboards and linen towels. Her profile reveals that “textile art has been a traditional craft in her family for several generations. Her driving passion for this medium guides her in the creation of unique and sophisticated textile masterpieces.” And masterpieces they are!

Art Propelled just became another new favorite web site for me. My personal list of favorites just keeps growing and growing. As it stands it would take me quite some time to visit them all. The hubby is adamant that I have reached the end of the Internet many times over.

I love the above posting of a primitive piece of macrame tribal art. There seems to me an flow and ebb to the random knotting patterns. I wonder about the scupltural faces within their framed containments. Are they memories of someone specific to the artist? Do they represent voices unheard or perhaps never to be heard again? See IRONIC’s Flickr photostream for a few more interesting pics. I’m especially fond of the photo of workers titled “Trabajo”.
