    Kelly’s work is AMAZING in person! None of it is collage, everything is painted or drawn although even when you see it you have a hard time convincing yourself that it’s not printed. Kelly will have work up in a show December 19 at Michael Rosenthal Gallery on Valencia in SF, and also in a solo show at the Medicine Agency in SF March 19. If you’re in the area I’d recommend seeing Kelly work first hand.

    • her website does list some of the work as collage but yea i would love to see her work if it ever came out this way!

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
