Barbara Abaterusso

Blacksmith - Lazio, Italy

Barbara Abaterusso

Barbara Abaterusso was born in a family of tailors and costume designers. Inspired by the baroque architecture of her father’s native Salento region and the cultivated world of her Venetian mother and grandmother, this artist experiments with unique combinations of materials to create superb pieces of art reminiscent of the embroidery work that the women in her family would gather to do when she was a girl. Her atelier in the heart of Rome is an ode to the memory of these two contrasting worlds, paternal and maternal, that both strongly inform her esthetic.
