Okay, you know how they say ‘love can be scary’… yeah, that’s how I feel about the wonderfully weird work of Pennsylvania based artist Rebecca Reeves. Here is part of her artist statement:

“In her current body of work, Reeves considers herself, the “Collector, Protector and the Keeper” of numerous family heirlooms.  Similar to the meticulously detailed Victorian human hair wreaths which represented the family tree; She obsessively cocoons the miniatures in thread in order to contain and preserve. Nearly, suffocating them in the process.” 

Suffocating cocoons. Terrifyingly poetic. She has a show opening in Seattle on Thursday September 12th (5pm) at Ghost Gallery. How perfect is that?
