Jacquelyn Royal - Behold Klaatu

Jacquelyn Royal

Location: USA

Jacquelyn Royal’s interest lies primarily in the manipulation of textiles in the service of subverting popular notions about the medium and her chosen subject matter.

In her series of urban needlepoint studies, she sheds new light on urban blight by translating its compositional and textural properties to a folk medium with little history for embracing dystopian ideas.

It is Royal’s hope that this juxtaposition will transform the audience’s perception of both and help them to see true beauty in what would otherwise be dismissed as banal.
