I recently saw 2 pieces of work by artist Robyn Love.
Baby Pictures: a piece with hospital employees baby pictures framed by a a hand knit tiny sweaters:
And Knit Two Together about what brought people to knitting:
This work really reminded me on one of my favorite pieces by one of my all time favorite artists, Annette Messager.....The boarders
The little boarder images suck, I know, but its the best I could do. Boarders are little taxidermy sparrows that Messager found outside her studio building (killed by flying into the big windows) she then hand knit little sweaters for each sparrow. The sparrows are displayed and lovingly laid out in a vitrine. The vitrine has changed with different installations....
So beautiful, sweet, and sad.
Making work with knitting always build so much love into the meaning....
