2009

About

Channeling memories of both his mother and grandmother making sweaters to keep their children safe and warm, he relates the act of knitting as a heroic gesture. Further inspired by the heroes, toys, and action figures of his youth, Newport humorously challenges ideals of “The Hero” by hand knitting reinterpreted costumes as well as the suits of heroes of his own invention. His work offers narratives of the popular personal hero through a contemporary textile outlet. Newport’s knitted costumes are life-size wearable objects that hang limply on hangers; the standard muscular form of the hero is deflated, offering the space for someone to imagine themselves wearing the costume.
