|The subject matter varies from foodstuff to robots and materials run the gamut from cardboard and paper to cloth, porcelain, metal, wool and yarn. All have been molded, etched, knitted or stitched into surprising shapes and forms from a knitted TV Dinner to a miniature streetscape. Here are works that have crossed the boundary between craft, design and contemporary art, many worthy of exhibition in galleries and museums.
From the vivid colors and definitive lines of Nicole Gastonguay’s knitted sardine can to the candid realism of Sara Escamilla’s cast footwear and clothing, each is in a class of its own. Other artists featured include Megan Whitmarsh, Stephanie Munroe, Christl Hansman, Diem Chau and Ana Serrano.
