Let’s Play War! / Nathan Vincent


When it comes to fibre art, Nathan Vincent doesn’t mess around. Or he does, but in a very tenacious manner. He uses yarn to create remarkable works that challenge our expectations of the materials, as well as the imagery he depicts. He does this through a cunning combination of processes, and subject matter. The processes he uses are traditionally considered feminine activities, such as: knitting, crocheting, sewing and embroidering. The subjects he chooses are traditionally masculine objects, like: slingshots, video game controllers, and super hero capes. This juxtaposition of the familiar in an unfamiliar context is what makes Vincent’s work so striking — via MAKE:
