Who Killed Bambi? Patricia Waller Killed Bambi

Posted by: admin In: Art News Blog

Remember the Knitting for Psychos post a little while ago? A couple people even wrote to me and told me that I was disgusting for posting them, but I think they just forgot to take their pills before writing to me. Well, I didn’t know who the works belonged to at the time, but now I do (thanks to those who let me know).

The “crocheted” not “knitted” (another thing I learned from a reader) works are by the German artist Patricia Waller. I visited her website to see some of her more recent works and saw Tweety below.

My first thoughts were “oh, she must create cute toys for kids too” but then I realized what is really happening with poor little Tweety! I’m a massive bird lover and the scene shocks me at first, but as a rational thinking (at least I think I am) person I can also see that it’s just someone having a bit of fun. It’s not a real bird boiling in a pot and the artist Patricia Waller is also probably an animal lover (with a weird sense of humor).

Lesson for today: have a sense of humor! Life isn’t THAT serious.

One more thing, the “Who Killed Bambi?” work in her gallery is really wrong. Even I went “awww, poor Bambi” lol
