72″ X 84″
This was the first pieces in the Man stuff series.
I get asked ALL the time what it is like to be a man in a profession and medium that is typically so gender dominated by women. This series is to show that making quilts doesnt have to be just an expression of femininity or the domestic.
This piece calls to mind “the Floor Scrapers” Gustave Caillebotte, with the perspective and the diagonal visual movement towards the lower right. This series is a testament to my place in the art world as a male making art with a process that has been dominated by women primarily as utility.
I wanted to show a “Man” item in a way that illustrates the use of fabric and light and stitching as notations of an art piece.
