Installation Crocheted by Ashley V. Blalock
Keeping Up Appearances is an ongoing, site-specific installation project by Ashley V. Blalock in which she strings up huge crocheted, web-like doilies throughout different gallery spaces. The American artist uses bold red cotton and yarn to create forms that burst from corners and walls, and cover the floor. Based in Southern California, Blalock describes her work as a fusion of craft with fine art. The typically delicate doilies are presented as enormous, intricate sculptures sometimes spanning as high as 15-feet-tall.
At such a massive scale, the explosion of abstract kaleidoscopic shapes no longer appear delicate, and thus, inherently overpower the viewer with the immense size and the intense, stimulating color.
