The Grotesque Nylon Sculptures of Rosa Verloop
Grotesque Nylon Sculptures of
We LOVE these sculptures. Yes, they are creepy, but this is expected of just about any nylon art. The first time I saw this art-form was while parading with my clown friends in Ojai, California. Dango, of Mango and Dango, had gifted himself a hefty set of biceps and voluptuous thighs. This would soon become a common practice amongst my peers. But I have never witnessed the degree of artistry exemplified in Verloop’s work.
Red threads become bulging corpuscles. A fold and tuck becomes a festering carbuncle. And with a twist, weather and wisdom is imbued into the flesh of the subject.
Verloosh sculpts both wearable art and stand-alone pieces. Ultimately, we love her work because it has so much spirit and it allows those whom wear her work to embody archetypes that have been abandoned by society. Her work allows freak charming to commence and magic to unfold.
