Violent Soft Toys

 

 

Patricia Waller was born in in Santiago, Chile in moved to Germany many years later.  She studied at the Free Art School in Nürtingen (Germany), and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe (Germany) under Professors O.H. Hajek, K. Fritsch, W. Pokorny, E. Wagner, and H. Klingelhöller.  She has a Diploma and Master’s Degree, has ben on scholarships in Ghent, Belgium, Columbia College, Chicago, USA, and at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, France.  She won an art award from the Werner Stober Foundation, and has lectured sculpture at the University of Applied Science, Pforzheim, Germany for 4 years.  She has also lectured at the University of Cologne, Institute for Art and Art History, Department of Textile Art.  She lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

She says “My ambiguous universe wrought from our turbulent modern existence is focused on art, commerce, technology, and pop culture. In a subversive tongue-in-cheek manner, I mix together the absurd and the bizarre, careful observations of everyday life and an interest in humanity, to create the different phases of my work.  Due to the technique of crocheting, traditionally a handcraft that is carried out in the intimacy of a cozy home, my artworks seem harmless at first sight.  But if you take a closer look, you will discover biting irony and a strong dose of nastiness.”

You can buy these for the kids for Christmas, just kidding, here
