About Carolina Reis

I am fascinated with the omnipresent virtual communications and intangible connections that links all living things. We are part of a vast interconnected web of relations upon which our lives depend for our most basic necessities. To make this very real but invisible aspect of our life visible and tangible, I turn to thread. When it is interlaced or woven in particular structures, it becomes very strong, just like the invisible connections we are part of. Every composition captures the complexity of ramifications and simplifies them into the unity of an intricate web. With the thread, I trace shapes and compositions of unrepeated and unpredictable patterns in which the eye loses itself for a brief moment of wonder.

I was born in Portugal and have been living for more than 25 years in the territory we now call Canada. I draw with threads and textiles. In all my creations, I take care to be socially and environmentally responsible choosing natural, recycled and local materials as much as possible.
