Manly Doilies



Artist Nathan Vincent creates doilies with traditionally masculine themes in order to explore gender roles in Western society:

My work explores gender permissions and the challenges that arise from straying from the prescribed norms. It questions the qualities of gender by considering what constitutes masculine and feminine. It critiques stereotypical gender mediums by creating "masculine objects" using "feminine processes" such as crochet, sewing, and applique.

Hmm. I don't like the Doilies to be honest, but the knitted taxedermy mounts (on his website) are pretty good, and display his talent much better I think.
