Vintage fabric embroideries by Isabella Rengifo

Our September/October issue includes a profile of the work of Venezuelan artist Isabella Rengifo. Rengifo has an unusual artistic vision that combines fragments of recycled fabrics, ink stains, and raw sewing techniques to create naive and dream-like imagery. Here we share additional work by the artist. To learn more about her work, visit Maria Elena Kravetz Gallery, Cordova, Argentina.
