FROM A HAPPY
I am KARIN O
I am an artist who just can’t get enough of stitches. It’s in my hands. I want to embroider, always. The threads are a recurring element in all my artwork. In my artistic creations, I let embroidery meet unexpected. materials such as old letters, postcards, vintage invoices, recycled tins and photographs. I like to see forgotten textiles come alive again through my stitched characters.
My surrounding is my inspiration for my art – I’m touched and affected by events and people I have met, seen or heard about. I’m fascinated by the absurdities and fun things of the world, where I question traditional roles in society and change places for high and low. It’s the act of transforming something trough art and adding a hint of reverse perspectives that illustrate my works.
I believe creating textile art is a wonderful way to awaken thoughts, convey comics, tragic, beauty and, not least, joy. What better way to do this than through an endless myriad of fantastic little needle stitches!
