Lorena Marañón

Born in 1988 in Holguin, Cuba Lorena Marañón is a textile artist with a love of colour and skill in craft that I find captivating. Currently living and working in Miami, Florida she began embroidering in 2009 by producing small and experimental pieces that became the foundation of a four year jewellery business.

I really wanted to get some of Lorena’s pieces on Howkapow, but their one-off nature and the fact they took (understandably) many weeks to create meant we couldn’t quite make this happen. Since then, her jewellery has taken a back seat and she now makes highly complex, meditative pieces as an abstract form of expression.

When Lorena works, broken symmetry guides her intuition and she sews her surfaces in a seemingly haphazard but highly sensitive way. Very often, a final piece and its process are dictated by a her need to glamourise colour and pattern through miniature scales. Little abstract shapes, squares, optical illusions and floral motifs play work together in perfect harmony to create beautiful, one-off pieces.

Ultimately Lorena wants to explore and transmute ideas through needlework (and more recently, patchwork) and I think she’s doing an inspiring job. Her exuberant use of colour and open-mindedness to shape and scale are second to none. I’ll be following this up-and-coming star for many years to come…
