ELiza Bennett

ELiza Bennett is a London based artist who recieved a BTEC National Diploma in art, focusing on textiles. She then continued to pursue a BA in Fashion Design at Middlesex University.

Eliza creates visual narratives with her pieces. Using her hand as a canvas, ” A Woman’s Work is Never Done” is a self-inflicted sculpture. These worn looking hands are a representation of how hard a women’s work truly is. Using thread and needle, which are traditionally considered feminine materials, she brings light to the struggles of low paid jobs such as cleaning and caring. This piece I must admit makes my skin crawl a little, but the message the work portrays and the crafting of it are truly beautiful. 

I’ve reblogged her before, but they just really speak to me. Maybe it’s because I’m into skin picking or something…

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.

"keep abortion legal"

"If she says no, it’s rape"

"Pro fucking choice"

This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.

But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.

Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.
