Rosa Verloop /forma mentis /sculpture

Naylon Creatures

Using nylon stockings and pins as her primary materials, Dutch artist Rosa Verloop creates sculptures that appear to stem from primordial depths. Resembling both fetuses and octogenarians, her figures sit at an uncomfortable place in the life cycle between birth and death. Despite the simplicity of her chosen materials, the works appear delicate and ethereal, as if the figures are floating peacefully through a sleepy spirit world. The tan nylon stockings eerily resemble skin, which the artist folds and bends into a twisted cacophony of wrinkles that give each form a unique, organic structure. Verloop currently has work on display in the Hague Municipal Museum in the Summer Expo 2012 group show. Take a look at some images courtesy of the artist. (source
