Ana Teresa Barboza is an artist whose work revolves around the combining the human body and embroidery. This is an example of how needlework can fragment and distort images. In her collection named 'Modos De Vestir' she uses clothing as a social link; a way of gathering people together and allowing them to be part of a community, again exploring our identity. 'Maquillage' also consists of a number of pieces focusing in beauty and ways that are socially acceptable to present ourselves. It looks at women with make up and without, 'exploring both sides of a woman'.
