and left to decay
green robot by Mimi Kirchner
Mimi Kirchner's works of art never cease to amaze me. To say I adore her work would be an understatement. Her work is just so incredibly good.
I have been sitting here for ten minutes trying to make sense of what it is about her work that I wanted to tell you about, to explain why I love it..
It is this:
Every piece of Mimi's work evokes an emotional response in me. Her collaborations of wool and felt and buttons and stuffing and doo-dads makes me actually feel something.
I want to gently prise this fellow from his damp bed, brush him down and take him inside. I would wipe away the moss and mud and maybe oil his limbs a little. I would clear a shelf in the sewing room where he could rest his days away in the sun. I would collect small keys and metal parts to keep him company and cheer his little metal heart.
Go and visit Mimi, lose the day trawling through her blog, it will be worth it I promise
