The physicality of time and space reclaimed, woven and knotted in constant place. As an artist Broche is an exceptional storyteller - whose work tells a good ghost story as easily as a charming family memory and ultimately Broche gracefully exits stage left to allow objects, cultures and relationships to tell stories all their own.

Amalia Galdona Broche

Broche creates in a labor-intensive, compiling, maximalist style that employs knotting, tearing, draping and coiling techniques alongside traditional and modern technologies. Broche draws inspiration from their formative years in Santa Clara, Cuba as well as internal landscapes complicated by questions of identity, transculturation, immigration and the interplay between the collective/individual. Broche is currently a MFA candidate of Visual Studies at the University of Kentucky.
