Amparo de la Sota is b.1963.
Daughter of painters she soon began her artistic training. She studied Arabic Philology and lives in Madrid, Spain.
She spoke about her creative process: “I “build” my work with irregular pieces of old fabrics. Rags, pieces of torn and worn fabrics, with some carefully embroidered initial. Heavy, thick linen fabrics that reach me from the past. With them I have recreated a map, a landscape in which to place them. Fabrics present in all homes, that are part of the past of all of us, objects that were once daily and that I wanted to bring to the present to admire and transform. And while I was embroidering it, I was not aware that another drawing, another pattern appeared on the back of the work, just like an insect, without realizing it, leaves its trail in the sand.”
