English artist Tim Moore looks like a lumberjack and drinks beer on his patio. And this man’s man likes nothing more than a spot of embroidery. Moore’s bizarre and often rude embroidery, seen at Helen Gory gallery, is delicate and sticks closely to the naive style of his craft while depicting ice-skaters with their cocks out and saggy naturalists playing golf on crutches.

Using vintage Sicilian fabric as his base cloth he stitches creepy and disarming characters not at all like the watercolour scenes you can buy at your local craft shop.
