For Daniel Riberzani, there is no creative border between painting and tapestry but rather an interaction of practices, a complementarity. He is one of the rare artists of L'Aventure Tissée in France, if not the only one, to practise both media "simultaneously", thus these two means of expression are enriched respectively by their specificities, inform each other (in the sense of giving form and meaning).
Daniel Riberzani, demonstrates once again the infinite possibilities of the woven medium, when it is understood and loved. With Riberzani, tapestry is more than ever a familiar art, but mysterious, timeless and serene.
