Rock Hill, SC - Fulvia Boriani Luciano is an artist residing and working in South Carolina, USA.
Using her own photographs and illustrations as a starting point for her fiber art, she paints, prints and stitches cloth, layering bold lines, brush strokes, graffiti, and raw edges. "One of the biggest attractions in fiber art work is the physical process of creating tactile and virtual texture through the use of stitching or by making hand-drawn marks on the cloth. The rhythm of repetition and variation that ensues induces a meditative, labour intensive state in which pattern and image become both symbolic language and structure", states Fulvia.
The complexity of each artwork's construction means that a single piece may take many weeks or even months to complete. Her work has been shown nationally and abroad, in juried exhibitions and
galleries, is included in several private collections, and is also in print.
