Elaine Bradford is an award-winning Houston-based urban artist who uses crochet as her main medium. She recently gained attention for her crochet artwork because she was commissioned to do an installation of her work at the Houston Public Library. Most of her work is animal life that has a crocheted sweater or crocheted skin over it but she has other tricks in her bag as well.
More about crochet artist Elaine Bradford
One of the things that makes me really love Elaine Bradford as an artist is that she takes an idea and really expands on it. For eksempel, she is collaborating with a writer and an illustrator to create a children’s book based on the hæklet kunst installation that she put up the Houston Public Library, ekspanderende på kunsten gennem bogen. En anden ting, jeg elsker ved hende er, at hun er virkelig en arbejdende kunstner, der arbejder på mange forskellige niveauer fra at skabe street art til at tjene i bestyrelserne i de lokale kunst organisationer. Bradford har både en BFA og en MFA og er blevet udstille sit arbejde på forskellige steder i mere end et årti.
Eksempler på Elaine Bradfords hæklet kunst
Billedet i toppen af ​​dette indlæg er en del af hækling illustrationer, der er omtalt i installationen på Houston Public Library. Dybest set hun har fyldt en hel rotunde på biblioteket med dyr iført farverige hæklede skind. Her er et andet billede fra anlægget:

Det er ikke første gang, at hun er hæklede dyr som denne. Hun gjorde tilsvarende arbejde i 2009 The Museum of Unaturlig Historie:

Jeg er faktisk virkelig fascineret over, hvad hendes arbejde ekspanderer til nu. Tag et kig på denne cool billede fra en 2010 projekt hun kaldte umulige ting, som var en del af en artist-in-residence begivenhed:

Men jeg kan lide nogle af hendes ældre arbejde samt, som denne unavngivne stykke:

Er Elaine Bradford en hæklet konservator?
For nylig profileret jeg en anden hækling kunstner, Shauna Richardson, der er kendt som en “crochetdermist”, et begreb, hun opfundet til at beskrive, hvordan hun crochets udstoppede dyr-stil dyr. En af de artikler, som jeg læste om Elaine Bradford kaldte hende en hæklet konservator samt skyldes hovedsagelig til det arbejde, som hun gjorde for Museum of Unaturlig Historie. Jeg tror, ​​at udtrykket er noget relevant. Men, because the animals are twisted away from reality in Dr. Seuss-like style, I consider them more whimsical and artsy than the termtaxidermyreally brings to mind. Derefter igen, I’m thinking now about some of the taxidermy items that have been put together and are on display at San Francisco’s Paxton’s Gate shopand if that’s taxidermy then I suppose this stuff could certainly be crochet taxidermy. Hvad tror du,?
Quote that describes her work
A bedømmelse from Bradford’s first Los Angeles solo exhibition in 2004 provides a nice little description of some of her crochet art:
Elaine’s work consists of various objects, including trees, vacuum cleaners, and mounted deer heads, “dressedin sweaters hand-knit by the artist, who aims toalter these everyday objects and infuse them with both the comfortable and the surreal”, in order tointroduce the viewer to an uncanny reality that is strange, yet plausible.The gesture is one of comfort, varme, and absurdity, adding a humorous twist.”
