Amalia Galdona Broche is a multidisciplinary artist working in fibers, sculpture, installation, and time-based mediums. Broche creates in a labor-intensive, maximalist style that employs knotting, tearing, draping, and coiling techniques alongside traditional and modern technologies. She draws inspiration from her 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. Filmmaker Ian Carstens sat down with the artist at her University of Kentucky studio in Lexington.
