Painting: Acrylic, Gesso, Watercolor on Canvas.
painting: pencil, watercolour, acrylic, sewing thread and gesso on unstretched canvas.
The sewing thread I have used on this canvas comes from spools of cotton which belonged to my grandfather. He was a tailor and fashion designer and ran a haute-couture tailor's shop, the Sartoria Gentili, in Rome first and in Umbria later on, from 1928-1957.
My artworks are born on the canvas with no or very little planning and they gradually take shape in, at times, unexpected ways. I stretch and prime the canvas myself, as a sort of ritual which helps me get in tune with my innermost, creative self. www.valentinacarini.com
