Barbara Guinevra


For centuries, textile arts remained confined to private spheres, primarily practiced among women. Passed down through generations, Barbara Guinevra learned the art of embroidery from her grandmother. However, within patriarchal societies marked by entrenched sexism, such crafts were often dismissed, denying them the recognition of fine art. Even today, textile art struggles to attain equal status. It is precisely due to this historical undervaluation that Barbara finds it imperative to democratize its appreciation as a legitimate form of art.

Today, Barbara endeavors to reclaim this traditionally feminine craft, infusing it with queer-feminist messages and subversions. Through her textile paintings, she seeks to provoke discourse on a wide array of societal, feminist, queer, and social issues.

To make her work more accessible, she shares and sells it on her Instagram account yourstitchwitch and various markets in Vienna and the surrounding area.

Her works have been part of exhibitions in galleries and museums such as Oxymoron Gallery, Art Attech, Picture On The Fridge, Queer Museum Vienna, Lazy Life, Mar Vista Art, Junge Kunst Wien and now Galerie Dumas. Apart from her own art, Barbara Guinevra is also a curator for Lazy Life’s Artist Of The Month.
