“DON’T WORRY IT’S ALL FUCKED” … a hand embroidered, double-sided piece of art. This is the work of a Sydney based duo known as Maricor/Maricar… aka sisters, Maricor and Maricar Manalo. They make all sorts of beautiful things {for both art lovers and commercial clients}, but given the state of the world at the moment, I thought this piece was appropriate. Here’s why they made it:

“In this double sided embroidery the positive and negative messages are contained within each other. Often self help/uplifting quotes can seem a little overly positive and off-puttingly earnest, so we wanted to create a tongue in cheek response to that stereotype. Everything is all fucked so you may as well try not too worry and be happy while you can.” 

I’ll try.

ps. Prints of this work are available in their online shop.
