These gruesome sculptures are the work of Dutch artist Rosa Verloop who uses nylon stocking materials as her main medium. The artist creates distorted human forms and monster-resembling creatures from hosiery that is moulded into various multi-dimensional elements.
These elements may be presented as wrinkles, skin-bulges or body parts that appear unflattering and disturbing to their viewer. Transforming her medium, artist Rosa Verloop creates these sculptural forms while exploring the common themes of life and death.
The disturbing depictions aim to shock their viewer and are not meant to be flattering or classically beautiful. The unconventional and raw forms are instead presented as gruesome and sinister making them evoke a powerful sense of presence and emotion.
