REEFER MADNESS

In the history of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Project, the mysterious “Dr Axt” has been a singular force. Over the past four years this enigmatic Seattle-based artist has created three giant coral mounds of exceptional beauty and scale. Collectively she calls them her “Reefer Madness” project. Hanging near the stairs we see her original installation, “Reefer Madness”, in red and pink and blue (from 2006), plus a brand new work, “Pinkus Yellownicus – Mermaids Wedding Cake”, (from 2009/2010). In the gallery upstairs is “Whiticus Reeficus”, the good Doctor’s personal response to coral bleaching (from 2008/2009).
