CLEMY ABADI: WAVES
Clemy Abadi was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, on February 8, 1940. She studied art at the Escuela de Artes Plásticas Cristobal Rojas in Caracas, the University of Nebraska, and with Venezuelan master Pedro León Zapata. A talented pianist, she has trained in classical music with Eva Hangelaid and Harold Y. Vargas. Clemy ventured into handmade wet felting in 2018 while visiting Uruguay, in the workshop of the artist Alejandra Rodriguez Medina, with whom she continued to experiment and perfect this ancestral textile technique between 2019 and 2021. Clemy reached her own expressive language of textures and colors that refer to her intimate connection with nature, art, and the delicate universe of emotions.
