A Series Of Knitted Masculine Masterpieces
June 18, 2010 § Leave a comment
My lack of consistency and less than nimble fingers have never been able to produce so much as a knitted pot holder. But I love what knitters can do and often wish I was one. For that reason, all of my admiration goes out to Nathan Vincent this week!
Sociological Images recently highlighted Nathan; a knitter with a mission to challenge prescribed gender norms by using feminine methods to make masculine works. His art ranges from 007 (double-0-7) doilies, to an entirely knitted lazy-boy recliner and television set. On a socially conscious level, I commend what he has set out to do with his artwork. It’s simple, humorous, and expertly executed. On a personal level, I now believe whats missing from my life is a knitted antelope mount.
