Chilean artist Jose Romussi studied landscape design but became famous with silk prints and collages over the past years.
Romussi takes vintage black & white photographs and saw over some colorful thread adding a playful touch to the frozen postures of the models. He is especially attracted by dancers and ballerinas that seem very sensual but inaccessible at the same time. Romussi is usind the dynamic in each picture, working over it with needle and thread, creating somethin new out of the old, bringing the old costumes of the dancers back alive. His works are an esthetic invitation to dream away.
