Patricia Waller, Who Kills Bambi?, 2008.
The crocheted works exude an irony that is difficult to misplace. Strong, violent imagery created with a technique reserved for civilized pursuits.
Patricia Waller, Tweety, 2008.
Waller is concerned with the lighthearted violence that is readily accepted by society. Anthropomorphic animals are often subjected to horrors in entertainment that targets children. Her interests are displayed in a disquieting manner which extends the problem in order to clarify the dilemma. If the cultural norm has embraced the torture of talking animals where does that leave the ignorant herd?
