I’ve always felt it took a certain amount of moxie to be a craft artist in a mass-produced world. Little did I know there was a craft artist called Moxie. This is one of her works from a series entitled icons & totems & pieces of the past which showed at Gallery Hanahou in New York City last year.
Moxie’s craft of choice is needle felting. Yeah, that little Leggo boy I remember well from my own misspent youth is entirely needle felted, and displayed in what appears to be a wooden cigar box.
I’m also loving the Hungry series, though it might disturb some very delicate sensibilities.
