Nathan Vincent: Crochet Artist

Nathan Vincent has a unique talent. He is a crochet artist and crochets objects. He grew up as a pastor’s son in the Midwest. His mother crocheted the family afghans and he asked her to teach him. He then made a bunch of granny squares and after that he taught himself how to knit.

My work explores gender permissions and the challenges that arise from straying from the prescribed norms. It questions the qualities of gender by considering what constitutes masculine and feminine. It critiques stereotypical gender mediums by creating “masculine objects” using “feminine processes” such as crochet, sewing, and appliqué.
