Forcella’s personal work using time-honored weaving and dyeing techniques reflects the artist’s multilayered culture and knowledge acquired both from academic and empirical research. The artist is able to achieve a wide spectrum of colors, hues, and saturation using local plants, bark, flowers, and insects. Her tapestries weave a symbolic thread that connects the traditional techniques to contemporary aesthetics. Her work expresses the alchemy of complex, subtle color combinations and textures.
