Shauna Richardson: Chrochetdermy

March 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Maybe I’m late to the table on this one, but I just encountered Shauna Richardson‘s taxidermy crochet for the first time. I don’t think they require a terrible amount of explanation, but I will say that the photography of her taxidermy “in the wild” is really pretty striking. Also via her website: “For two years she has been creating the largest single-handed crochet sculpture in the world. The finished piece will be housed in a mobile glass taxidermy style case and tour throughout 2012.” What! Can’t wait to see the unveiling of this crochet behemoth. (via who killed bambi)

And while you’re digging up your old comic books to start your next herb garden, check out these plastic toy dinosaur and animal planters by Plaid Pigeon. Awesome. With this morning’s thick layer of ice and my subsequent sidewalk face-plant, can you tell I’m itching for spring?

Walton Creel: Deweaponizing the Gun

February 6, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Alabama artist Walton Creel uses a .22 caliber rifle to construct portraits of animals on thick sheets of aluminum, one bullet at at time.

When I decided I wanted to make art using a gun, I was not sure what direction I would have to take. I knew I did not want to use it simply as an accent to work I was doing, but as the focus. My main goal was to take the destructive power away from the gun. To manipulate the gun into a tool of creation and use it in a way that removed it from its original purpose, to deweaponize it.
