What is Left (the materials I have in my studio), Cynthia Fusillo

Flowers from Angela, Sienna, Sandra


After about 6 weeks of isolation I have a limited amount of materials to work with. I usually pick up Nature and buy a few things at the local art supply store.

Luckily I am industrious and started to create things with the dried and dead flowers I had received from my daughters and friends.

Most of my work is about the body and human experience.

Living in Harmony

This installation I made in Shanghai at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel ..I was drinking a lot of tea ,so, most of these shoes were made out of the teas I drank (rose, flower, lavender, puerh) The papers I died with tea also. One pair of shoes is made from an ancient Chinese dictionary that I found in a book market.

Using materials that are natural and a part of every day life -ritual interest me.

  1. Oh, I love your tea-shoes! And I really hope it will be possible to soften the lockdown soon, or at least you will somehow get Nature-supplied with new materials!

  2. Happy to see more shoes! 🙂
    Do some of them exist as single objects? It seems that three of the shoes on the photo don’t have pairs. Or are they just not in the image?

What do you think about this?
