Peter Frederiksen 'draws with a sewing machine' to create stunning embroidery artwork
Dom Carter , Creative Boom, 20 September 2022
Embroidery artist Peter Frederiksen shouts into the void with NO NO NO NO NO, a new solo show at Massey Klein Gallery themed around the idea of pain, denial and refusal. Working with a standard - albeit altered - sewing machine, Peter champions the art of embroidery to create fantastic fabric artwork stitch by stitch. In NO NO NO NO NO, his first solo exhibition at Massey Klein Gallery, he draws on his love of post-war cartoons such as Warner Brothers and The Simpsons to create artworks that appear to rail against the world in a state of defiant protest.
