Monday is usually the day when I profile the work of a crochet artist that I’m enjoying. Somehow I feel behind and although I have tons of crochet artists that I want to write about, I don’t have the time this morning to do an in-depth write-up. So for this week, I just wanted to share the links to the artists that have been profiled on the site so far in case you’ve missed any of them:
- Multimedia artist Laurel Roth. Her crochet work includes messages about women on crocheted/embroidered menstrual pads and stunningly detailed crochet outfits for wooden pigeons that make a statement on urban life.
- Mixed media artist Mandy Greer. Her crochet work includes large scale crochet sculptures with a bit of an abstract air.
- Crochetdermist Shauna Richardson. She has gained a lot of attention recently for the HUGE crochet lions she’s making for the Olympics.
- Fiber artist Robere Mertens. He does abstract crochet artwork and also does some interesting work with sound performance.
- Creepy, cute crochet artist Patricia Waller. She is known for her daring works of art that pair the macabre with dizzyingly cute crochet.
- Doily artist Joana Vasconcelos. Actually this multimedia artist is known for many different things but her doily crochet sculptures are of particular interest.
- Bay area crochet artist Jack Davis. This man has been crochet penis sculptures for 30 years, something worthy of attention regardless of how you feel about his art.
- Street crochet artist Olek. She’s gained attention with her yarnbombing but she’s also got exhibitions of her work.
