Maria Aparico Puentes stitches thread into geometric shapes over a variety of photographs. The contrast between the black and white photos and the bright colored thread gives the viewer the impression that the subjects are existing on the border of another dimension.

The Chilean artist's work is very successful at depicting unseen forces in a way that people actually can see. The threads that connect a couple's lips, or pedestrian's feet to the ground represent an unseen energy that we can feel, but cannot see. Maria Aparico Puentes is able to visually represent forces like love, motion, and the divine through her work.

Puentes writes on her website, "I imagine that some of these impressions point me to study architecture." With the beautiful work she has created so far, we would be happy to see anything that she decides to pursue next.
