a pamphlet

whole marshall
Been recouping from a cold and chewing on some of the latest on line conversations and exchanges, while slowly stitching what has turned out as a statement. It was not intentional,i was trying to keep busy and not feel miserable while a warp hangs around waiting for its turn to be converted into reality.
As i said on line - this is not elegant, quoting myself :( -i do not care what i'm called whether be it artist, fiber artist or gift to the world. i don't even care what i call myself.
But it's fibers that i enjoy working with, that make me want to go into the studio every day, that encompass the lens through which i make literal and figurative connections, see, understand and express many things.
It dawned on me -excuse me if you already knew this- that while it's interesting ,because it's eccentric and could be even cute, that men endeavor in fiber related pursuits, the minute a woman takes a needle in her hand she starts losing IQ points. So we become apologetic. And develop cover ups and linguistic cop outs.
Therefore for those of you who are old enough to remember Marshall McLuhan
here you have in book form my take on him . Sorry Marshall!

sorry marshall !

  1. "the minute a woman takes a needle in her hand she starts losing IQ points. So we become apologetic. And develop cover ups and linguistic cop outs."

  2. Brilliant, Neki. It IS the message.

    But you know what? I worked for 25 years in the corporate world, the only woman among my peers, manifesting my Masculine. Doing needleart has called forth my Feminine, and I don't feel at all apologetic or defensive about the medium in which I work. I am assertive about it, though. :-)
