Patricia Waller (b.1962 Santiago, Chille)
Currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Patricia Waller received her MFA in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe, Germany in 1990. She was a lecturer at the University of Applied Science in Pforzheim, Germany from 2002 to 2004; also at Textile Department in the Institute for Art and Art History at the University of Cologne, Germany from 2003 to 2004/2007.
Waller is known for her bright cartoon style crochet work that often has a macabre element to it. Her works have been collected by numbers of renowned collectors and museums in Europe. “Due to the technique of crocheting – all my works are produced by myself in handcraft, and the selection of the subject-matter, my works seem harmless at first sight, but if you take a closer look, you will discover biting irony and a strong dose of nastiness.” says Waller.
