  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    On the pages of a 20th century old book, sentences and expressions emerge highlighted with red embroidery, bringing to the present fragments of past stories. In this sewing box, life runs by a thread... the thread of life. Living memories leap from pages and move through time to become present again. As the images are perceived, photography/imagery, literature/words, fuse so the observer can be able to seek his own memory and, in his perception, turn the artwork on something new. All artworks are made with old photographs from the artist's family, telling their stories.

    “To evoke the past as an image, it is necessary to be able to abstract the present action, it is necessary to know how to value the useless, it is necessary to wish to dream.” Henri Bergson, in Matter and Memory - Essay about the relation between body and spirit.

Regina Correa

Brazil Born in: 1960

Long before become a visual artist, Regina Correa learned the trade of sewing and hand embroidery from her mother as a cultural female skills. These crafts leads to threads and welfts... as well as photographs.

Regina Correa's photographic research focuses on questions about identity and memories, its surrounding secrets and unknown mysteries.


In order to make up her images, she assembles, reuses different materials, such as old photos and assorted ordinary artifacts. Alternative photograph, cyanotype, analog photos, photograms are tools to improve her work. The artist adds a sort of peculiar touch: sewing, handmade works, collage, embroidery, for instance.


Through her art, Regina Corrêa invites the viewer into a process of self-renewal, by exploring human relationships and ways to rebuild occasional brokenesses to reach for a potential healing. Thus, a caress, hopeful and cozy atmosphere embraces her entire work.
