Girl With a Hook Sculptural Crochet

Heather Lightbody (Girl With a Hook) is completely and totally obsessed with yarn. She loves all the textures and colors…sometimes she finds herself thinking about yarn all day long. She is also obsessed with handspun yarn. All of her creations are made with handspun yarn, much of which she spins herself.

Heather has been crocheting hats for 7 years now.  She also crochets headbands, shrugs and scarves. “It’s become my life and my art. My ideas start as one thing and always seem to morph into something else by the time the end is near. That’s just how i work…the yarn and my mood show me where the hat should go,” she says.

To check out more of her amazing creations, you can go to her etsy page or to see even more examples of her work check out her flickr.

Chiho Aoshima

In the past 10 years Chiho Aoshima has made quite a splash in the world of Japanese pop art.  Her large scale fantasyscapes frequently depict surreal nature scenes incorporating images of young women and otherworldly beings.  She has no formal art training, but is a master of her computerized techniques.  Her technologically dependent style of image making falls directly inline with the Japanese pop art aesthetic, and her complex layering of color, culture, and cuteness combine to create truly enchanting and twisted views of the world.

Chiho Aoshima is a member of the Kaikai Kiki Collective of artists.  Check out their site for more of her images and links to a bunch of other super cool “Superflat” art!

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
