PATI REIS: "More Than Words" ART AT CAMERON VILLAGE REGIONAL LIBRARY
"I am a native of Brazil, and now I live in Raleigh where I am happily immersed in my career as a tactile artist and business owner. The inspiration for my creations and process come from all over: I picked up needlepoint from my Brazilian grandmother and American patchwork from my aunts. I learned to hand-bind books from a professional bookbinder and developed a passion for re-using materials and found objects at North Carolina State University. Re-used materials—like newspapers in foreign languages—bring a deeper layer of meaning to my work.
Since my early life I realized that visual translation is also culture translation. Consequently, I spent most of my time understanding culture expressions."
