ABOUT

My name is Fulvia Boriani Luciano and I am an artist residing in Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA.

Using my own photographs and illustrations as a starting point for my art, I paint, print and stitch cloth, layering bold lines, brush strokes, graffiti, and raw edges. One of the biggest attractions I find in this type of work is the physical process of creating 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. The complexity of each artwork's construction means that a single piece may take many weeks or even months to complete. 

My work has been shown nationally and abroad, in juried exhibitions and galleries, is included in private collections, and is also in print. All work is for sale; commissions and collaborations are welcome. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
