We were pleased to find out about the work of Hinke Schreuders. It’s a fantastic mixing of media that deserves inspection. Here is a statement from the artist’s website:

Hinke Schreuders (1969) lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the Netherlands and Europe. Hinke Schreuders’ works mainly focuses on embroidery, depicting female figures that are often based on photos from her personal archive. In sweet yet seductive pieces she subtly confuses notions of feminine vulnerability and reinforces the position of embroidery as an artistic medium.

The ongoing series Works on paper, started in 2008, is based on Fifties’ magazine photos of models showing the latest fashion. With black ink and embroidery the artist transforms these innocuous images into unsettling vignettes resembling the more narrative fashion editorials of today. A bride is crying tears of thread, polka dots on a dress become a shower of shiny raindrops and a field of daffodils takes over a woman’s appearance.
