I recently mentioned that a friend had pointed me to the work of local crochet artist Ramekon O’Arristers who has a current exhibit I’d love to go see.
I just came upon an interview with crochet artist Caitlin McCormack that got me curious about the kind of work that she’s creating.
In celebration of Halloween being around the corner I thought I’d share the crochet art of Johanna Schweizer.
She creates artwork based on personal emotion and “aspects that society might deem as weak and unacceptable to express especially as a female.”
It was so fun to interview this young adult who graduated last spring from a unique arts-oriented high school where she was allowed to pursue her interest in crochet.
Last year I did a profile of crochet metal artist Ruth Asawa. I’m thinking about her work again now because this amazing San Francisco artist recently passed away.
Reed was a self-taught Hartford-based mixed media fiber artist who worked in crochet as well as fabric, trapunto quilting and found objects.
