Philip Hare is a Toronto based artist and member of Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts. He works primarily with textiles to explore sex and gender, often through a very personal lens.
Inspired by the 2008 televised coverage of the event of the same name, Speech From The Throne, Philip Hare’s 6′ X 6′ wall hanging combines digital photography with traditional quilting to create a patchwork of porn stars and Canadian politicians (and his own “member” of Parliament).
