About The Artwork

“Bloodvine” was created by exploring multiple levels of storytelling, much of it buried under ink, never to be seen by the viewer. The first layer of imagery, created in 6 separate pieces, was a black and white print of the torso of a woman, sans face and legs. This image represented women as nameless, faceless objects of adoration. She was surrounded by various etchings of sperm, braided hair and ladders. The second layer brought in color and alternate textures. Once the overall image was done and that story had unfolded, it was covered with black and stitched back together, leaving bare only the simplified silhouette of a woman through which we see the remnants of the story. As the final piece of the narrative, a winding, red ribbon of ivy (blood ) was added that grows from between her legs. This print was selected for display at the IPC gallery in NY.

Dominique Vitali is a multidisciplinary artist specializing in embroidery and printmaking. Her work focuses on her personal experiences living within the confines of a female body, exploring sexuality, religion, and body image. The shared narratives of childbirth, menstruation, dysmorphia, sexual violation, and societal scrutiny all come into play and find connections with the viewers in their shared commonality. Catholicism—its pageantry, its patriarchy, and the tightrope walk between madness and mysticism—has factored heavily into much of her imagery. The stories depicted are deeply personal and, filtered through the lens of a woman, inherently political. Dominique’s canvas of choice for her embroidered narratives is vintage lingerie, with its inherently sexual, incredibly personal, pre-existing histories. She finds it an interesting juxtaposition to tell her stories using a skill so entwined in feminine piety, all upon a canvas that is historically sexual in both its iconography (simultaneously enhancing and masking sexuality) as well as its proximity to the previous owner’s flesh. Dominique’s work in this medium plays with the aesthetic contrast between unexpected, bold imagery and delicate, utilitarian garments, oftentimes venturing unashamedly into deeply intimate subject matter. With her works on paper, Dominique is currently immersed in an ongoing series of large-scale monoprints that explore the narratives of various women, both fictional and non-fictional, whose stories have captivated her in the shift that occurs when re-imagined through a more contemporary female lens. Her hope is to find her own truths through literally reconstructing disjointed pieces of prints and stitching them together, re-forming her own interpretations of the stories. Dominique currently lives and works in the New York area, and has shown in galleries both in the U.S. and abroad. Recent highlights include a printmaking residency in Venice, Italy at Studio Fallani, and inclusion in the esteemed North American Printmaking Biennial.
