EMBROIDERING

Servín Barriga Family

Patzcuaro, Michoacán.

Madre: Consuelo Barriga Barriga

Hija: Teófila Servín Barriga

Teófila has embroidered her life and stitch after stitch tells her story on a cotton blanket. She knows the threads of existence and how a moira constructs the stories of the Michoacan people, evoked by the native woman. She chains the forms, scales the red trapezoids and cordons the lilac with great care. Fill the forms and make them for the feasts.
