BEAUTY: Soft Sculpture--Karl Erickson
Multi-media and performance artist Karl Erickson created s series of pillows based on close-up photos of eyes, done in latch hook rug material. My mom used to make latch hook rugs in the 70s and I never imagined that this method could be employed to make a fine-art object. But it works, precisely because of the 70s craft associations! Whimsical but also infused with meaning... And as decorative objects, theya re quite beautiful!
