Embroidered self-portraits by artist Juana Gòmez

Juana Gómez is an artist who turns her gaze towards the inside, towards her inner part, towards everything that is not visible to the naked eye.

She embroiders her bones, muscles, veins and synapses that lie under her skin and she does it on beautiful self-portraits.
She traces her biological structure making it visible, just like that of many elements found in nature.
Her goal is to connect the interior and exterior, connect the microcosmos with the macro cosmos in order to bring them closer together.

“There is fundamental law that can be seen in the veins of a leaf, the course of rivers and their tributaries, the circuits of the central nervous system, the currents of the sea, and the routes of traffic on the Internet.
Deciphering this common language, which connects the micro cosmos with the macro cosmos, the external and the interior world, allows us to distinguish a pattern that influences inert, biological, social and cultural systems.”
