Rachel Denny

It seems like many are taking interest in doing knitted work or crochet for animals these days, we had reported Shauna Richardson previously on her crochetdermy and now Rachel Denny on her knitted animals.

Rachel Denny's work is an exploration of the seductive beauty of our natural world and the imprint that human intervention has made on its flora and fauna. Denny is attracted by the exuberance of nature in urban and unexpected places. “A deer in an urban backyard, a family of Peregrine falcons at my neighborhood park, a coyote skirting a parking lot,” she says, “These all become a moment of wonder as they shake us out of our daily routines. Denny works in a variety of materials—wood, plaster, resin, wool, found objects—to name a few". She is interested in the potential of her materials and how they can be manipulated in unexpected ways. “I am inspired by the elegant forms found in the natural world and the time honored action of trying to depict these forms in a relevant and interesting way that is an homage to this beauty and wonder."

  1. I like this version of taxidermy so much more than using real dead animals.
