barb hunt

I discovered the work of Canadian artist Barb Hunt some time ago, but was reminded of it again by a post on Arounna's site.

The pieces in the camouflage series use fabric from used military uniforms and camouflage patterns to create something that is at once rugged and beautiful:

And the antipersonnel series features replicas of antipersonnel land mines knitted with pink wool:

If you are in the Toronto area, there is a great looking show on now until June 21st at the Harbourfront Centre - Lookit,Lookit,Lookit - featuring Barb Hunt and 7 other Canadian artists.
