Posts Tagged ‘Luz Novillo-Corvalán’

Art inspired by Virginia Woolf always inspires me. And that was the case at the 28th Annual  International Conference on Virginia Woolf last June at Woolf College at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England.

Luz Novillo-Corvalán

Woolfian Artists

Luz Novillo-Corvalán from Argentina’s University of Cordoba was one of three artists on the “Woolfian Artists” panel the first morning of the conference.

The others were Ane Thon Knutsen with “Reading Woolf from the Type Case Perspective: Finding Artistic Freedom Through ‘The Mark on the Wall'” and Adriane Little with “Virginia Woolf Was Here” in which she combined Woolf’s words with water from Woolf sites.

Portraits and more

Luz’s presentation, “Portraits of Radical Women: From Anais Nin to Virginia Woolf,” featured her lovely portraits of those artists and others, embroidered in one continuous chain stitch on paper.  The Woolf portrait is pictured below, along with other pieces Luz displayed — and sold — at the conference.

“Why should men drink wine and women water,” asks Virginia Woolf in A Room of One’s Own, and Luz Novillo-Corvalán adds a new twist to the question by embroidering it on a handkerchief.

Displayed at the conference: paper art with a Woolf theme featuring The Waves, Orlando and Monk’s House from Luz Novillo-Corvalán.
