Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge, where we showcase people whose embroidered creativity is fresh and new!
Nike Schroeder is a Los Angeles based artist who uses free machine embroidery to explore human experience and play at the edges of abstraction and surrealism.
Over the past few weeks we have seen the terrific breadth of Nike’s stitched work. Cool. stylish and filled with character, her pieces exemplify where cool embroidery is at right now.
These two self portraits are from the redline series. The dangling threads traverse the fourth wall and add drama to the pieces.
We round the showcase off with two pieces from the Brown series.
Nike displays great skill in capturing human behaviour and then playing with space and non-space. I can’t get enough of this kind of work.
You can find out more about Nike on her website, and be sure to check back over the previous posts about her, to truly enjoy this terrific talent!
