Contemporary Artists – Las Hermanas Iglesias

Las Hermanas Iglesias, The Iglesias Sisters.

Two sister artists, Lisa and Janelle Iglesias each recreate their own bodies in a witty fiber-arts project. Working with knitted body suits made by their mother, the Iglesias Sisters embroidered their finer details – body hair, birthmarks, tattoos, etc. By recreating their bodies in this art piece, these women highlight the infinite number of customizable options that knitting allows while raising questions about self identity and what it means to cover our bodies.
