LJ Roberts: Carry You With Me

Ten Years of Portraits

Foreword by Sur Rodney (Sur). Text by LJ Roberts, Carmen Hermo, Theodore Kerr. Conversation with Tirza True Latimer, Tina Takemoto.

LJ Roberts: Carry You With Me

Embroidered portraits of New York City’s queer and trans communities

The result of a long-term, ongoing project by Brooklyn-based artist LJ Roberts (born 1980), Ten Years of Portraits consists of six-by-four-inch embroidered portraits of the artist’s friends, collaborators and lovers within New York City’s queer and trans communities. Stitched entirely by hand and typically completed during transit on subway trains, these textile works—culminating in Roberts’ first publication as well as their first New York solo exhibition at Pioneer Works—aim to illustrate how politics, culture and identity manifest in both visible and subtle ways through everyday encounters in daily life.
Depicting both the rectos and versos of each embroidery, this publication presents portraiture in both figurative and abstract form while also providing us a glimpse into the textile craft. For Roberts, the adaptability of these techniques mirrors the flexibility, resilience and resourcefulness needed to navigate the world as a queer, gender nonconforming and nonbinary person.

LJ Roberts: Carry You With Me

LJ Roberts: Carry You With Me

“David John Sokolowski & Michael Tikili” (2014) is reproduced from LJ Roberts: Carry You With Me, a featured title at our booth at EXPO CHICAGO, collecting a decade’s worth of embroidered portraits of the artist’s friends, collaborators and lovers within the queer and trans community. Roberts notes the place or places where each piece was stitched and writes a note about its meaning. In this case: “David is in a flashy coat, the kind my Jewish grandmother would wear to a restaurant. His green mascara highlights his eyes. Michael is adorned in a leather harness; his sultry gaze matches his lush gold chain. We spend so much time readying ourselves for parties. We search for outfits that generate just the right electricity to power us until early morning, or, if we are lucky, dawn. Leaning on the bar, we work to get the attention of the bare-chested bartender. Trying to get the 8-Ball into the corner pocket is a weekend well-spent. The ritual of dressing together—adjusting suspenders, buckling straps, collective swipes of red lipstick, and then shimmying into a too-tight tube-top—is just as vibrant and raucous as the party we end up at.” continue to blog
