LIVIANA DI GIUSTO

ANCIENT WEAVINGS BURST INTO MODERN ART OUTCOMES IN LIVIA DI GIUSTO’S HANDS

LIVIANA DI GIUSTO

Liviana Di Giusto's fabrics are unique works, where traditional frames interwave innovative models thus mixing past and modernity. Ancient hand­looms and conventional textures blend in with the search for new elements, giving birth to original creations full of evocative effects. Free from the surface bidimensional boundaries, composition becomes a colourful patchwork having often unexpected outcomes.

The artist, who was educated at Udine Art Institute, attended several international contests on textile design, winning important awards. In her atelier Arteviva, founded in 1980 and now become a real point of reference in Friuli weaving outline, the artist produces tapestries, carpets and decorative fabrics with metal inclusions of great emotional impact. She cooperates promoting fiber art and making people come in touch with this noble artistic expression historically linked to the community life in Friuli.
