Netherlands-based artist Pauline MM Nijenhuis creates astonishing embroidered and acrylic paintings of cars, humans, and the built environment.
From an interview:
I’m imagining ‘speed’ in a very labor intensive and time consuming technique. My method is decisive for the story I want to tell. I ask myself the following question: ‘What is the impact of the increasing rate of our lives, the constant ‘racing’ and our perception of multimedia?’ You feel you are forced to live life in a rapid way. Can our brains cope with this increasingly fast living and overwhelming amount of imagery? What are the consequences? Are our ‘hasty’ decisions the right ones?
When I start the process to create a new picture I go to the highway and look for velocity/speed and shoot pictures from a moving car. The bias in the photos, caused by the speed of the car, give a different picture of the world, another truth. The change of speed can make another outcome, provide a different gradient.
