Joana Vasconcelos’ Impressively Crocheted Statue and Painting

Joana Vasconcelos

Do you know how to cro­chet? If so, good for you! (I am very bad at it.) Joana Vas­con­ce­los is very adept at this craft, and uses it to cover cement stat­ues and as the basis for paintings.

Dainty-looking cro­chet cov­ers an oth­er­wise nude woman, adding not only mod­esty but reli­gious over­tones as well. Vas­con­ce­los impres­sively forms the dec­o­ra­tive net­ting and dol­lies to strate­gic parts of the woman’s body.

This paint­ing, com­posed within an ornate gold frame, bursts out of its con­fines and towards the viewer. Vas­con­ce­los cre­ates abstract forms that read as a liv­ing organ­ism, like a coral reef on the ocean floor.
