Portfolio > Loudmouths

The Loudmouths series is, by contrast to my other series, focused entirely on contemporary American culture, specifically American media. The 24 hour news cycle combined with the unfiltered pool of information on the internet has created a disturbingly inaccurate never-ending flood of misinformation. The media figures that get the majority of the attention are the most outlandish, loud, and often hateful. These figures skew facts, overdramatize events, instill unnecessary fear, and generally misinform the public, relying on shock value to stay in the limelight. With this series, I have created larger than life embroidered portraits of some of the media figures that I find to be instilling the most damage on contemporary American culture. With contrasting bright colors, each portrait depicts a media figure grotesquely vomiting, intended to serve as a visual depiction of their constant stream of chatter that has flooded American media outlets.
