Mr X Stitch Presents: The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge – Nike Schroeder Part 4!
|Share the love...||
Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge! I’m Mr X Stitch and I’ll be your guide to the best in contemporary embroidery. Each week I’ll showcase someone who is rocking the world of embroidery and textiles.
Today, the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge presents the final selection of Nike Schroeder‘s work.
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.
