Huxley King "Fuck Shit Up"

$650.00Price
Acrylic yarn on plastic canvas

Artist Statement: I've always been fascinated by the historically "feminine arts." But, being a natural-born rebel with a twisted sense of humor, I never approach one without the clear intention to subvert it in some fashion. Needlework appeals to so many of my aesthetic preferences--it allows for obnoxious color combinations, unexpected textures, and intricate patterns. I began with thread and canvas but soon switched to yarn and plastic canvas for a bigger, bolder palette. When it came time to assemble this piece, I was primarily on the lookout for interesting contrasts--innocent, dainty doilies and dangerous metal spikes; candy colors, soft to the touch, and the slick feel of bondage straps. It makes for an interesting juxtaposition--a thoroughly prim and proper medium for a message that is (if you'll pardon the expression) punk as fuck.

Huxley King is a Writer, Illustrator, and Professional Creative Weirdo residing in Nashville, Tennessee. Her artistic efforts encompass everything from mime performance art to a graphic novelization of Pride and Prejudice. Yarn is her favorite medium.
