The Idea: integrating layers of thread unto a floral fabric base. The resulting image is rich, warm, abundant like a tropical rainforest.

You may wonder: How did his affinity for threads and sewing develop?
Here’s what I learned from an art review on gmanetwork – Raffy’s mother is actually a seamstress. So there you go- his exposure to the wonderful world of threads started very early.

 “Napay’s distinct use of cloth and thread as a material for large-scale works produces objects that straddle the traditional boundaries between textile, sculpture and painting: transforming into contemporary art many localized forms of artistic production.” – Artinformal

rx-logo-11So do… reflect on this piece by Raffy Napay.
Here’s my personal reflection: The garden of life can sometimes present a web of unnecessary complexities.  Keep focused on what truly matters.  Stay true and committed to those you love.
