“…Arizona-based artist Mark Newport uses superhero imagery and handcrafts, such as knitting and embroidery, to explore ideas of self-protection and protection of others as well as different facets of masculine identity and activity. On view are Newport’s hand-knit, life-size superhero suits, along with his elaborate samplers, where he embroiders directly onto comic book covers.”
