The Embroidered Image · Robert Mann Gallery · New York

May 29 - August 15, 2014

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.

During a group show (see details below) at Robert Mann Gallery, Hinke Schreuders presents five new works in this series. For the first time she's not only working on black-and-white but also on color prints, giving the work a more exuberant and brighter atmosphere.
