Ridelust Art: Theresa Honeywell’s Knit Motorcycle

Posted in Design, Motorcycle, Sportbikes by Vito Rispo | November 4th, 2008 | 2 Responses |

Washington DC native, Theresa Honeywell is a young artist who reproduces tattoos in lace, and knits cozies over manly objects. She has a knit toolbelt, jackhammer, machine gun, etc. This one is acrylic yarn knit over a motorcycle (extra credit: What kind of bike is it?).

From her website: “Provocative imagery and macho icons are rendered into delicate and beautiful pieces of art that seem to question the notion of what art is, and what is “only” a handicraft. Her work is very labor intensive and densely rendered. She takes a craft that is considered to be “pretty” and merely decorative, and creates art that comments on our rigid notions of gender roles and high/low culture.”
Eh, art talk. Check out more pics:
