Le crochet-artiste I profiled two years ago was Robere Mertens. This artist blends crochet with sound appropriation and composition in unique installations that make big statements. He has a new art website that I don’t remember seeing the first time I looked him up. The image above his Post-Apocalyptic Shrine piece made last year.

 Crochet: 2011, 2012, 2013 (2/11   2/17)

J'ai partagé le crochet d'art de Odia Reimer, which really touched me. The exhibit I wrote about then features pieces that Odia and her father created in memory of Odia’s sister who was murdered on her way home from school nearly thirty years ago but whose killer was only convicted a couple of years ago.

In news about people crocheting in 2012, this week held info on women in India who were crocheting to make a living and also undocumented college students in America crocheting to put themselves through college. The guy from the latter story (Jose Luis Zelaya) seems to have an empty Etsy store at the moment but I’m not sure if that’s temporary.
