Hinke Schreuders’ 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.
Hinke Schreuders (1969) lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. ‘Works on paper’ as described above is only part of her body of work, that consists of mainly embroidery. It has been presented in galleries and museums in The Netherlands, Belgium and the UK. Last spring it was on show at Robert Mann Gallery in New York. Find more works at www.hinkeschreuders.nl.
