Troy Emery, Top Bloke2016. Embroidery on linen, 68 x 45 cm

“This is an embroidery that depicts a garish face in a yellow and black motley pattern. I see it as an anthropomorphic pineapple. I associate pineapples with a trip to Hawaii I took last year. It was the last family holiday I spent with my ex-boyfriend’s family. I’ve recently been interested in embroidery as a way of translating my sculpture practice to a 2D format” – Troy Emery
