Quilt Extremes

There was a posting on Craft Gossip that caught my eye today – it is about a quilt artist named Ben Venom who is going to be having a solo exhibit at the Get This! art gallery in Atlanta.

His quilts are quite beautiful while also macabre…an interesting combination!

Check out a video of Ben as he discusses his art and process. Pretty neat. I especially love the last little bit he shows – a banner that says “I wanna be Somebody”. Isn’t that really what everyone wants? I don’t mean in that desire-to-be-famous way (which I suppose could be what he means)…but in that leave a mark on the world way. You know, to matter?
