inspiration: Kate Just

I have been very inspired by knitting lately and always on the lookout for new work and new artists that I haven't seen before. Kate Just is a Melbourne artist creating these large scale knitted sculptures - check her website for more information and more images.

"Kate Just is a Melbourne based artist best known for her sculptural knitting practice informed strongly by emotional and autobiographical references. Experiences of childhood memory, migration, and the death of her brother influenced early works. Imbued with a sense of melancholy and disconnection that came with leaving and losing family, large scale knitted sculptures include Uniform (Dad) (2002) of Just's father in his police uniform, and Family (2004) a sculpture of Just's own family." from her website, Kate Just
