I'M SARA LUNA
I am a fiber artist currently living and creating in Salt Lake City, UT, though I was born in Chile and carry the vibrant culture and traditions of my homeland with me in my work. My artistic journey began with my pursuit of degrees in visual arts and digital illustration, which laid the foundation for my exploration into the world of fiber art.
My first love in this medium was the punch needle, and I quickly became enamored with the intricate patterns and textures I could create with this unique tool. However, as I continued to develop my skills and explore new techniques, my work has evolved to include weaving and cross-stitching as well.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my craft is the process of hand-spinning my own yarn, which I then use to create my pieces. I find joy in creating gradients that are completely unique to my style, and in the tactile experience of working with natural fibers.
Through my art, I strive to honor the beauty of traditional Chilean textiles while pushing the boundaries of what is possible in this medium. My work is a reflection of my passion for portraits, and my dedication to my craft is evident in every piece I create.
In my artistic journey, I like to explore the enigmatic realm of human existence, capturing the essence of our shared experiences and the silent narratives that dwell within. My choice to create portraits without eyes and eyes without faces is a deliberate attempt to delve into the profound mystery of our inner selves. Through my work, I invite the audience to question the conventional understanding of portraiture and to contemplate the unseen narratives that bind us all. In the absence of eyes or faces, my art becomes a reflection of the universal human condition — a poetic exploration of the hidden, the ephemeral, and the timeless aspects of our shared existence.
