Ghoulish, Coolish Mom Art:  Johanna Schweizer

Ghoulish, Coolish Mom Art: Johanna Schweizer

Ok mom, here’s another October odd art moment.  

Johanna Schweizer is an artist from the Netherlands who builds figural sculptures using crochet and various other fiber techniques.  For subject matter, she draws on mythology and ritual, often “cultic” and “demonic”.  The resulting combination is an unusual fusion of reality and fantasy, elegance and craft.  

I mean, just look at these curious creatures!

I’m really liking these strangies.
