So, I think it’s needlearts show and tell time. I found some photographs today that truly delight me, and I really have to share.
Composed of creative knitting and elaborately staged photography, this dark, fanciful work from artist, Daniela Edburg, is inspiring. The Hollywood lighting and bizarre, dramatic scenes remind me of the beauty and despair in movies like Pan’s Labyrinth. Okay, maybe these aren’t that dark, but her DROP DEAD GORGEOUS series might be. Perhaps it reminds me of a more modern Return to Oz with a bit of the Duck and Cover turtle (plenty of mushroom clouds in her work) and a few Pleasantville people thrown in. Can anyone think of an artist’s work or movies/books/music that have a similar feel? Post ideas in the comments for me. I’d love to find more like this. Enjoy, you knitters, photographers, and lovers of the strange.
