Bellbottoms
by sabine7 / March 22, 2005


Darrel Morris learned to embroider at his grandma’s knee, back in Appalachia. Now a textile artist and associate art professor, he uses his skills to portray a society where umpteen socio-economic and gender issues are as yet unresolved. Bellbottoms is a poignant piece of social commentary that employs techniques of appliqué and embroidery. Morris also creates large-scale murals based on collages of newspaper photos that he stitches onto canvas and then tears away to reveal only ghostly outlines.

Artist: Darrel Morris
