Micro snatch - yellow

Micro snatch - yellow



These tiny pieces are samples of how small I was able to go using the rug hooking technique. Made with embroidery thread instead of yarn, the vagina is less than 5 cm tall, is securely mounted on to a yellow backing, and inside a 10 x 15 cm frame. Please note the framing is not professionally done, and the pricing reflects the artwork only (but the frame will be included).

"Swept under the rug"

I started my vagina rug project when commissioned to create 10 pieces of this shape for Seed Gallery. As a self-professed prude they presented a challenge to me, but as I created them I felt this whole awkwardness surrounding the depiction of vaginas completely vanish. They're freeing and fun, both abstract and literal in their randomness. I suppose a lot could be read in to the acceptance of my own femininity in creating them using such a traditionally feminine pastime - and it might be true. But more simply, I'm married to a gynaecologist and they make me smile. 

I've decided to continue on with this project and see where it takes me, experimenting with and documenting my front bums as I go. No two are the same, I create them without forward planning with choices on colour and shapes made as I work. I will post pieces of varying sizes as available.
