Hard is Soft
THERESA HONEYWELL takes macho objects and covers them in soft knitted coverings. Her work uses an almost universal feminine art form (or craft) cross-pollinated to universally accepted “macho” objects like motorcycles, jackhammers, guns and tools of all kinds. Historically, I am reminded of pop artist Claes Oldenburg’s (b. 1929) signature soft sculptures, made of sewn canvas and cloth —objects like soft hamburgers, sewing machines, and famous soft toilet.
