“I Like Fast Cars”

"I Like Fast Cars," embroidery on canvas, 2005

Similar to my other embroidery works, this diptych plays with ideas of feminine identity and the dichotomy of the post-modern girl. I also incorporated my love of typography with my own hand-embroidered version of Times New Roman. For this work, the car had to be a muscle car–and what would be more perfect than a Camaro?

This work was displayed at the Corcoran Gallery, D.C., Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, and the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse Miami.
