Ester del Carmen Chacón Ávila is a Chilean textile artist who began her trade in Paris. Figurative and abstract in essence, she works on the human figure highlighting subjects related to woman and her bond with the primitive indigenous culture of South America. Her work materialises in tapestries, where anthropomorphic characters appear made with knots and braids made without a systematic metric. She works with colour, highlighting tones in red, blue, yellow, light ochre and black. She uses natural and synthetic fibre, cords, yarn, wool, hemp, sisal, raffia, silk and jute. Her works are monumental woven sculptures expressing postures, attitudes and body gestures. She has also made pictures in paper using mixed techniques, ceramic, gilding, fabric design and textile objects.
